MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

2019-20 is off to a great start at Pi Gamma Mu and we wish to thank our Chapter Faculty Sponsors for their volunteerism and support.

In 2018-19 chapters inducted 3,217 new lifetime members bringing the total membership of Pi Gamma Mu to 275,203 as of August 31, 2018.  That is a 1% increase in new members as compared to the previous year.  We wish our chapters congratulations on their success and hope that they can increase membership again this year.  Last year we saw many chapters celebrating more top social science students than ever before by inducting them to membership.  Thirty-seven chapters became 2018-19 Star Chapters by increasing their memberships by 20% or more over the previous academic year.  Congratulations, Star Chapters!  For the first time, Pi Gamma Mu also recognized it's Top 10 Chapters by Membership.  The following chapters sent in the most chapters in 2018-19:

  1.  Philippines Alpha, University of the Philippines Diliman, 311 Members, Elisio A. De Guzman  
  2. West Virginia Iota, American Military University/American Public University, 255 MembersAllison G. S. Knox

It is the lifetime membership fees collected by Chapter Faculty Sponsors that allows Pi Gamma Mu to provide services to its members such as scholarships, a professional journal, conventions, and more.  The fees also allow the Society to maintain fiscal stability and prepare for a strong future.  We thank the Chapter Faculty Sponsors for this important work!

We hope that you will strive to make both your chapter and Pi Gamma Mu as a whole stronger by inviting all eligible students to join.  Remember that students may now qualify as second-semester sophomores and that Pi Gamma Mu is interdisciplinary in nature.  We encourage your chapter to include all eligible disciplines: anthropology, criminal justice, economics, geography - human, gerontology, history, history of education, human services, international relations, political science, psychology, social philosophy, sociology, social work, as well as related interdisciplinary programs anchored in the Social Sciences, particularly those that focus on age, environment, ethnicity, gender, race, and regional studies.  In addition to undergraduate members, don't forget to invite eligible graduate students, faculty, and professional staff. 

Please contact our office if you any assistance with your chapter's membership drive or any other matter.

Thank you!
