2021 LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM ENJOYS SUCCESS

National Museum of the Marine CorpsThe National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia

After postponing last year’s convention due to COVID-19, the Pi Gamma Mu 2021 Virtual Triennial International Convention took place November 3-6, 2021, with the theme “Social Scientists Leading the Way.” For the second time in convention history, participants could attend a Leadership Development program for a modest fee. Pi Gamma Mu board of trustee member, Allison G. S. Knox, directed the seven-hour event. Professor Knox teaches at the American Military University.

Throughout the program, participants learned about leadership in a variety of different contexts including academia, stressful environments, non-profit organizations, public policy, and in the United States Marine Corps. The virtual event included webinars, lectures, and a unique online experience with Laura Shaw, teacher-in-residence at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia.  Additional Leadership Program speakers included a program administrator, an emergency manager, a college dean, and a journal editor. Twenty-seven convention attendees participated in the program. 

Those receiving certificates of completion and their respective Pi Gamma Mu chapters are:

Miguel Victor Durian – Philippines Alpha Chapter, University of the Philippines

Branson Freeman – Kansas Theta Chapter, Newman University

Coreen Garrity – Maryland Theta Chapter, University of Maryland Global Campus

Bethany Hanford – Maryland Theta Chapter, University of Maryland Global Campus

Leander Marquez - Philippines Alpha Chapter, University of the Philippines

Rola Ombao -  Philippines Alpha Chapter, University of the Philippines

Romeo Joshua Redelicia - Philippines Alpha Chapter, University of the Philippines

Natasia Skinner – Hawaii Alpha Chapter, University of Hawaii at Manoa

Eliana Varrucciu - Nebraska Delta, Wayne State College

Some of the many favorable comments made by those who participated include “Thanks again for the wonderful program!” and “My thanks for the opportunity to attend this fantastic event!” A future issue of International Social Science Review (ISSR), Pi Gamma Mu’s scholarly journal, will include more detailed commentary on the program.  Plans are already underway for the next Leadership Development Program to be held in conjunction with the 2024 triennial convention, which will also mark the one hundredth anniversary of Pi Gamma Mu – International Honor Society in Social Sciences.
