ACHS MEMBERSHIP PROTECTS THE LEGITIMACY OF HONOR SOCIETIES

ACHSPi Gamma Mu is one of 66 member societies of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), which is the authority on standards and definitions for the honor society movement. ACHS has stepped up efforts to alert the higher education community to the standards of traditional honor societies. In contrast, some new so-called honor societies exist online and allow self-nomination, accepting fees with no questions asked. If in doubt about an organization, you can check out the ACHS Web site (www.achshonor.org) for the list of honor societies that are members.
