Honor SocietyPi Gamma Mu is one of 68 members of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), which is the authority on standards and definitions for the honor society movement. ACHS has stepped up efforts to alert the higher education community to the standards of traditional honor societies.
In contrast, some new so-called honor societies exist only online and allow self-nomination, accepting fees with no questions asked.
