MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

2018-19 is off to a great start at Pi Gamma Mu and we wish to thank our Chapter Faculty Sponsors for their volunteerism and support.
In 2017-18 chapters inducted 3,121 new lifetime members bringing the total membership of Pi Gamma Mu to 271,986 as of August 31, 2018.  We saw many chapters celebrating more top social science students than ever before by inducting them to membership.  Thirty-nine chapters became 2017-18 Star Chapters by increasing their memberships by 20% or more over the previous academic year.  Congratulations, Star Chapters!

UPDATED CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS AVAILABLE ON WEBSITE

Following a lengthy development and review process that spanned several years, Pi Gamma Mu adopted an updated Constitution and Bylaws at its 2017 Triennial International Convention in Kansas City, Missouri in November, 2017.  Several face-to-face meetings of the Board of Trustees and dozens of telephone meetings resulted in the new documents that will help guide the Society into the future.  Chapters voted to approve the changes by returning ballots they received in the mail.

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.

Pi Gamma Mu communicates with its lifetime members via email. Anytime your email address changes, such as after graduation or when you change jobs, please notify the Pi Gamma Mu office immediately.
