REMINDERS FOR CHAPTER SPONSORS

ReminderThe International Board of Trustees wishes to express their thanks to the chapter sponsors that help keep Pi Gamma Mu going.  Pi Gamma Mu chapter sponsors donate their time and talents to provide the recognition top social science honor students deserve.  Pi Gamma Mu values the time, energy, and resources you commit to your students every day. 

Without the new initiates you induct into your chapters each year, Pi Gamma Mu would cease to exist.  In order to prepare for a strong future we must continue to grow by initiating more outstanding students and we need your help.  If you increase your chapter's membership by 20% or more as compared to the previous year, you will receive special recognition including: 1) a letter to your college/university president, 2) a Pi Gamma Mu Star wall plaque, and 3) recognition in the Pi Gamma Mu Newsletter, our journal -- The International Social Science Review, and on our website.  Please become a Star Chapter by inviting more eligible students during your next membership drive.

Serving as a chapter sponsor can be an incredibly rewarding job and our staff is dedicated to keeping sponsors informed of resources that can contribute to their success.  Thank you for your continued support of Pi Gamma Mu!

Please review the following suggestions for increasing your chapter's membership:

  1. If your school has satellite campuses, invite eligible students from all campuses to join your chapter.
  2. Utilize your school's registrar or data specialists to request a list of all eligible students and invite all of those students to join.
  3. Remember that graduate students are eligible to join.
  4. Invite faculty and administrators to become lifetime members.
  5. Does your school have a growing online student population?  Remember that both online and on-ground students are eligible to join.
  6. If you use an electronic invitation, please resend the email invitation several times in order to increase the response rate.
  7. Make use of Pi Gamma Mu's interdisciplinary nature and invite students and faculty from various departments.
  8. Promote the benefits of lifetime membership in your invitation letter:
    • Recognition for your high scholastic achievement,
    • Lifetime membership,
    • A handsome certificate worthy of framing,
    • A membership card,
    • A gold-plated keypin,
    • Opportunities to publish in the society's newsletter and peer-reviewed professional journal,
    • The opportunity to apply for Pi Gamma Mu scholarships,
    • The opportunity to wear Pi Gamma Mu honor cords at graduation,
    • A valuable item for your resume,
    • Advancement in Government Service Rating,
    • The opportunity to present research at Pi Gamma Mu conventions, and more!

Please remember that we are here to help you.  If there is anything we can do to assist you with your chapter's membership drive or any other matter, do not hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to hearing from you!
