MEET YOUR REPRESENTATIVE

Thompson
Emma Grace Thompson
At each Triennial International Convention, the student members elect two students to serve on the international Board of Trustees for the upcoming three-year period. Both student trustees then attend the annual board meetings during that triennium and participate actively in governing Pi Gamma Mu. Board membership is a sign of respect and accomplishment, particularly if it happens when one is still a student.

SHADOW PRESIDENT UPDATE

MillerThe Pi Gamma Mu Shadow President was conceptualized for the 2008 Triennial International Convention--aptly named "A Political Party." Elected by the student delegates, the assignment for the Shadow President was to propose policy ideas and evaluate the initiatives of the current President of the United States in an occasional Newsletter column.
In this issue: Public Lands, By Aaron Miller.

ReportChapter annual report forms will be mailed to Chapter Sponsors in April. It is very important that all sponsors fill out and return this form to the international office by August 15. The form is available on our Website for those who would prefer to send it back electronically. We appreciate each Chapter Faculty Sponsor taking the few minutes to complete and return this report.

SPRING MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

At Pi Gamma Mu headquarters we are happily fulfilling orders for new membership credentials as the spring membership drive season continues. If you haven't started your chapter's spring membership drive, it's not too late! If you conducted a fall drive, would you consider conducting another drive this spring? 
It is the lifetime membership fees that allow us to serve our members and chapters through member-exclusive scholarships, lectureship grants, conventions, our peer-reviewed professional journal, and more and it is the Chapter Faculty Sponsors who make it all possible by recognizing well-deserving students with an invitation to join.  Thank you for your hard work and continued support!

ISSRTHE INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE REVIEW

Pi Gamma Mu's commitment to scholarship in the social sciences is manifested most tangibly through the publication of our peer-reviewed journal, the International Social Science Review. The journal publishes three times a year in the spring, fall, and winter. Each edition contains about four peer-reviewed articles. Each edition also contains about 15 book reviews, which are written by scholars and carefully polished for publication by the book-review editor and the editor-in-chief.

ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE HONOR SOCIETIES

Honor SocietyPi Gamma Mu is one of 69 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. If in doubt about an organization, you can check out the ACHS website (www.achsnatl.org) for the list of honor societies that are members.
