TRIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION

"Pi Gamma Mu Honors America's Past, Plans the World's Future"
October 20 – 22, 2011

Plans are coming together for our next Triennial International Convention. Our hotel, the Holiday Inn National Airport, is in Arlington, VA, but we will be spending most of our time in Washington, D.C. The Metro subway line goes from our hotel into downtown Washington, D.C. Research papers or research poster papers will e presented in a committee room of the U.S. Congress. We hope all chapters will be sending delegations and that delegations will be present to support presentations in the U.S. Congress. We are also planning a simulated student Constitutional Convention to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Tour – on Friday we will have a walking tour of the capital, "It's a Mall World After All" led by Secretary-Treasurer Larry Heck.

Paper Proposals – Pi Gamma Mu student members may propose to present papers or posters of their research at the convention. Pi Gamma Mu will pay for one night's lodging at the hotel for each student member whose proposal is accepted and who presents his or her research paper or poster paper at the international convention. Proposals for this convention must be submitted in the form of a completed research paper or, at a minimum, a complete draft of a paper. Students may present their research paper as a poster paper or make a formal presentation.

The chairman of the Committee of Readers is Dr. Charles Hartwig, South/Southwest Regional Chancellor for Pi Gamma Mu. Students should submit their proposal by e-mail to [email protected] (and send a copy to convention-committee chairman Barry D. Friedman at [email protected]). Attach the research paper as a Microsoft Word document. Other formats are unacceptable. Proposals must be received by Dr. Hartwig no later than June 1, 2011. We will also have a simulated national student Constitutional Convention for the proposal of amendments to the U. S. Constitution. Delegations should begin to prepare amendment proposals. These should be submitted in advance to Dr. Barry D. Friedman so plans can progress on the student Constitutional Convention.

Service Project – We are asking delegates to bring a stuffed animal to the convention, perhaps with some kind of state-specific identification such as a state flag or a ribbon with the name of the state on it. The toys will be collected and donated to a local organization. In the past we have given the stuffed animals to a battered-woman's shelter. One of the ideals of Pi Gamma Mu is Social Service, and we want to leave Washington, D.C. knowing that we were able to help some children.

Hotel – We will be staying at the Holiday Inn National Airport Hotel in Arlington, VA. The room rate is $119.00 per night (plus applicable taxes) for up to four people. The hotel is located at 2650 Jefferson Davis Highway; phone is 703-684-7200. Attendees can fly into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and ride the Metrorail to the hotel.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Anytime you move, such as after graduation, please notify the Pi Gamma Mu office immediately. This will prevent your mailings from being interrupted or discontinued. The International Social Science Review is not forwarded by the post office, so we don't know if you receive it. Just mail a change of address card, post card, letter, email (executivedirector@pigammamu.org) or go to our website (www.pigammamu.org) to change your address information. We need your name, as well as your old and new address.
