2017 PI GAMMA MU CONVENTION

Purpose: This session is designed to feature posters from Pi Gamma Mu chapters that exemplify the diverse strengths of our chapters, to create a forum for exchanging ideas regarding a wide range of chapter activities, and to promote interaction among participants and attendees. It is a chance for convention attendees to come together and use poster displays to share the good work they do.

Poster: A poster consists of an exhibit of materials that reports activities or information in visual and summary form. During a poster session, the presenter(s) stand by the display while others come and view the poster and interact with the presenter(s). In this way, chapter poster presentations provide a unique platform that facilitates discussion of chapter activities, generates ideas and exchanges, and allows meeting attendees to browse through highlights of chapter practices and ideas.

Content: PGM chapters are diverse and promote scholarship, leadership, and service in a variety of ways.  This session offers a venue for chapters to feature their various experiences, activities, and strengths. Posters may provide a general overview of a chapter's activities for a previous year or focus on a particular type of activity a chapter wants to share with others. This may include programming, initiation ceremonies, recruitment strategies, fund raising, a chapter's history, and/or service projects.  
 
Submission Information: 
Poster proposals are welcome anytime but are due no later than September 15, 2017. 
Send poster submissions directly to Jean Karlen ([email protected]). Contact Dr. Karlen with any questions you may have.

NOTE: Once reviewed and accepted, the presenters/chapters will be notified of their acceptance. This process may help the chapter in seeking institutional funding for the presenters. Thus, chapters are encouraged to develop their poster ideas now and submit poster proposals this spring or early in the summer.

Submissions should include the following information:

POSTER TITLE

PRESENTERS: Please provide names and email addresses for all student and faculty presenters, if possible. At a minimum, each participating chapter needs to submit the name and contact information of one individual who will serve as the chapter's key contact for the session.

CHAPTER and FACULTY SPONSOR:  Provide the chapter name, institutional affiliation, address, name and contact information (email and phone number) of a faculty sponsor. 

ABSTRACT:  (a summary of the poster's content in 150 words or less)

Expectations of Poster Presenters: 
Students must be members of Pi Gamma Mu and register for the convention by the October 15 deadline in order to be mentioned in the convention program.

Posters may be on display in an open area for some of the convention time; however, on Saturday morning chapter representatives are to be present by their posters during the poster session to offer summaries of their posters and answer questions.  

Format/Set up Information: Posters will be placed on easels so will need a backing or clips to be securely attached to the easel. Foam boards or tri-fold cardboard boards work well.   No additional materials including tape, pins, glue, or cardboard will be provided.  Additional information will be provided to presenters at a later date.

Poster Submission Deadline: September 15, 2017.

Please contact Jean Karlen with any questions you may have.
