PLAN TO ATTEND THE 2014 TRIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL
CONVENTION IN OCTOBER IN N. CHARLESTON, S. C.

CharlestonCome join us for Pi Gamma Mu's triennial international convention in Charleston, S. C., on October 16-18, 2014, at the Crowne Plaza Charleston Airport - Convention Center in North Charleston.  This charming southern city is one of the Top 10 tourist attractions as one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the United States.

The convention will allow you to meet members from other Pi Gamma Mu chapters and learn what they are doing at their schools, present a research paper from your social-science courses, and visit a variety of historic and interesting places in Charleston.  You can tour a plantation, take a horse-and-carriage ride through downtown, visit the aquarium, take a ferry boat to Fort Sumter, or take a ghost tour of the area's haunted sites.

Our opening reception on Thursday night is full of fun and games.  How good are you at Jeopardy!?  On Friday you will learn about our interdisciplinary fields in the social sciences as student papers are presented, chapter posters are displayed, and academic research is discussed.  The Friday-evening banquet will feature keynote speaker Dr. Thomas M. Carsey, the Thomas J. Pearsall distinguished professor of political science at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.

The convention committee is planning a group trip into historic, downtown Charleston on Saturday, during which we can learn more about this classic, Southern city and walk the cobblestone streets, see Rainbow Row, look across the harbor to Fort Sumter, marvel at the waterfront parks, and visit the open-air city market.  We are sure to see the Gullah women practicing their ancient art of basket weaving.  Museums, art galleries, haunted graveyards, fine cuisine, and more will make this an exciting tour.

The convention committee is building a Web page containing information about the convention.  The URL address is www.pigammamu.org/convention-2014.html.
