PI GAMMA MU'S NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR IS NANCY WIEBE

During a meeting in Springfield, Mo., on October 17‑19, Pi Gamma Mu's international Board of Trustees appointed Nancy T. Wiebe, grant-development manager of United Methodist Youthville, Inc., in Wichita, Kans., since 2007, to become the honor society's international executive director.  Wiebe's appointment is effective on January 1.

Wiebe has extensive experience as a manager in the nonprofit and public sectors.  Among other appointments, she has been assistant director of the Kansas Child Abuse Prevention Council; director of the AIDS Fund of Wichita/Sedgwick County; senior coordinator of community partnerships for the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita; and director of allocations of United Way of the Plains, also in Wichita.

Wiebe earned a B.S. degree from the University of Kansas (KU) School of Journalism and an M.B.A. degree from KU's School of Business.  She was initiated as a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society for business.  She also earned a certificate in nonprofit management from Wichita State University's Center for Management and Development.

She is a past president and member of the Wichita Professional Communicators and a member of the Kansas Professional Grant Association, the Wichita Independent Business Association, and the Wichita Women's Leadership Alliance.

Pi Gamma Mu's Personnel Committee, chaired by student trustee Amanda M. Wolcott, and the Board of Trustees interviewed three outstanding finalists for the executive-director position at the Springfield meeting.  In her application, Wiebe wrote to the Personnel Committee, "I am a great believer in teamwork and very much agree with the 'Power With' leadership style and [the board's] enlightened personnel-management philosophy."  Wiebe will be responsible for a variety of functions of Pi Gamma Mu, including leadership of the board's initiative to emphasize ethics and inclusive decision-making.

Since the retirement of executive director Sue Watters on April 30, Beth Biddle has been acting executive director.  The board recently promoted Biddle, the honor society's long-time office manager, to the rank of associate director for chapter services.  Wiebe will join Biddle and chapter-development officer Angela Shear in the organization's international office in Winfield, Kans., on January 1.
