ΠΓΜ FIRST VICE PRESIDENT ATTENDS ACHS ANNUAL MEETING

ACHSSusan Kinsella, First Vice President of the International Board of Trustees of Pi Gamma Mu and Chair of the Department of Human Services at Saint Leo University, attended the Association of College Honor Societies Annual Council Meeting in Savannah, Georgia last month.  The ACHS is the nation’s only certifying agency for college and university honor societies.  The ACHS sets standards for organizational excellence and for scholastic eligibility for the various categories of members.  Pi Gamma Mu has been a member of the ACHS since 1953.

The theme of this year’s meeting was, “Engagement is Our Key to Success”.  The three day meeting featured lectures, roundtable sessions, business meetings, board meetings, and a tribute to Dorothy Mitstifer who passed away last year.  Dr. Mitstifer was the long-time executive director of the ACHS.  ACHS Board President and Psi Beta executive director, Jerry Rudman, provided reports and presented the tribute the Dr. Mitstifer.  Dr. Kinsella shared what she learned at the meeting with the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees in a conference call on February 28 and the board and staff are incorporating those new ideas into the work of the society, particularly by expanding its use of social media and technology.

SavannahNotable experts and guests included Peter Wolk, Attorney at Law; Dawn Digrius, Senior Project Manager of the SCU STEM Collaboratives Project; Eileen Merberg, executive director of Alpha Lambda Delta; Deborah Tippett, professor and Head of the Department of Human Environmental Sciences at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC; Ahmed Mohamed, a student at the University of South Florida; and more.
