MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

2014-2015 is an important year for Pi Gamma Mu (its 90th!) and this year we are focusing on growth.  In order to maintain fiscal stability and prepare for a strong future we must continue to grow by inviting more outstanding students who deserve to be honored to become lifetime members. 

We have completed another great convention with over 80 students, faculty sponsors, and alumni in attendance in Charleston, SC last month.  Outstanding research papers were presented, chapters shared their unique stories, and we got some great ideas directly from chapter sponsors and students who participated in our new strategic planning process.

One message we received is that in this period we need to work closely with chapters to reach more outstanding students in the social sciences who deserve to be honored through membership.  Receiving an invitation to join Pi Gamma Mu is an honor both students and parents value a great deal.  We want more top students to have this opportunity and we are asking chapter sponsors to help us achieve this mission.  We have launched our membership drive this year by providing more membership application forms and by inviting chapters to become more involved in planning our future.  We have also expanded our Pi Gamma Mu Star program.  Chapters who increase their membership by 20% or more over the previous fiscal year will become a Star Chapter, will be listed on our website, and will receive a wall plaque. 

We have already seen a positive response to our request for your help.  Long Island University Post in New York recently opened up its invitation process to more eligible students and increased their membership by 233% in one year.  Elmhurst College in Illinois also had a stellar year with a 146% increase.  Wilmington University in Delaware had an increase of 43% this year.  It is the faculty sponsors who make success stories like these possible and we thank them for their hard work, dedication to their students, and their volunteerism to Pi Gamma Mu.  Our hope is that more chapters will join these Star Chapters by offering the benefits of membership to more qualified students this year. 

Another avenue for growth is the chartering of new chapters and the reactivation of chapters that have become inactive.  If you know a faculty member at a college or university without a chapter who might be interested in getting a chapter started, please provide us with their contact information and we will assist them with chartering a new chapter at their school.
