ΠΓΜ EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ATTENDS ACHS ANNUAL MEETING

Suzanne Rupp, executive director of Pi Gamma Mu, attended the Association of College Honor Societies Annual Council Meeting in Reno, NV last month.  The theme of this year's meeting was, "Knowing and Promoting the Value of College Honor Societies – Celebrating 90 Years of Aiming High".  In 2012, the ACHS meeting focused on strategic planning which resulted in initiatives to be developed in 2012-2015.  ACHS Board President and Psi Chi Executive Director, Martha Zlokovich, reported that those initiatives have been accomplished or are in progress as planned.  In 2014, the organization focused on developing a communication plan including rebranding, telling the ACHS story, producing a PR tool kit and flash video, as well as developing guidelines for chapter programming.  In 2015, the ACHS will shift its focus to its Honors Councils which will work on grants, best practices, and developing clear guidelines for member societies.

The meeting included business sessions, roundtable discussions, workshops, and presentations.    Notable experts and guests included Susan Albertine, Vice President of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success at The Association of American Colleges and Universities; Dr. Joseph Cline, Professor and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at the University of Nevada, Reno; Dr. Brent Drake, Chief Data Officer at the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Effectiveness at Purdue University; Dr. Todd Felts, Assistant Professor at the University of Nevada, Reno; Dr. Mary Pritchard, Professor Emerita at Northern Illinois University; Dr. Marcelo Vazquez, Associate Dean of Students at the University of Nevada, Reno; and Peter Wolk, Attorney at Law.  Several honor society members currently attending college also spoke at the meeting.  Ms. Kristen Hogan and Ms. Alycia Lynch from Eastern Kentucky University and Ms. Siobhain McGuinness, Mr. Evan Thacker, and Ms. Morgan Thacker from the University of Nevada, Reno all made presentations from the perspective of the honor society student member. 

Pi Gamma Mu has been a member of the ACHS since 1953. When asked about the purpose and benefits of attending such a meeting on behalf of Pi Gamma Mu, Dr. Rupp noted, "The ACHS annual meeting is the only place in the world where leadership from various honor societies can gather to work together to maintain high standards, share ideas, and build a cohesive community of national and international honor societies."
