2014 PI GAMMA MU CHAPTER DEVELOPMENT SHOWCASE

Submissions Wanted!!!

Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014

Invitation: Each triennial convention has time devoted to chapter development during which attendees can share information and exchange ideas ranging from initiation ceremonies to community service. The 2014 convention chapter development session will be designed as a "showcase" in which chapter displays provide the start/spark for conversation and creativity. In order to have a successful session, the Convention Committee invites all Pi Gamma Mu chapters to submit proposals for displays to present during the "Showcase."

Purpose: The session is designed to feature poster displays 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 share through posters the good work they do and for attendees to learn from each other.

Content: Pi Gamma Mu chapters are a diverse group that promote scholarship and service in a variety of ways.  This session will offer a venue for chapters to feature their various experiences, activities, and strengths. Poster displays 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 or special anniversary, and/or community service. 

Showcase Displays: A Showcase Display is a poster presentation which consists of an exhibit of materials that reports activities or information in visual and summary form. During the session, the presenter(s) stand(s) by the display while others come and view the poster and interact with the presenter. In this way, the Chapter Showcase session will 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.

Note: The Chapter Showcase proposals and poster displays are in an entirely different category from the student research proposals.

Submission Information:
Showcase proposals are due no later than Sept. 5, 2014. Early submissions are encouraged. Send poster submissions directly to Jean Karlen ([email protected]).

Notification: Once proposals are 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.

INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

POSTER TITLE:

AUTHOR(S): Please provide names and email addresses for all student and faculty presenters.  (If there are more than one author, indicate with an asterisk (*) the principal author responsible for presenting the poster.)

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

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

Expectations of Poster Presenters:
Students must be members of Pi Gamma Mu and register for the convention by the Sept. 25 deadline in order to be mentioned on the convention program.

Posters will  be on display in the general meeting area for much 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 tables and must be freestanding without any additional need for support for display. No additional materials including tape, pins, glue, or cardboard will be provided.  Foam boards or cardboard tri-panel boards similar to ones used for science fairs work well and are readily available in office supply stores. No AV or computer equipment can be provided.
Additional information will be provided to presenters at a later date.

Poster Submission Deadline: Sept. 5, 2014.

Please contact Jean Karlen ([email protected]) or the Pi Gamma Mu international office with any questions you may have.
