PI GAMMA MU DIRECTORY

REQUESTS FROM MEMBERS TO BE LISTED IN DIRECTORY PROMPTS PUBLISHER TO EXTEND DEADLINE; DISTRIBUTION NOW EXPECTED IN MARCH

DirectoryContinuing demand by members of Pi Gamma Mu to obtain entries in the first-ever Pi Gamma Mu membership directory has motivated the international Board of Trustees to ask Harris Connect to extend the deadline for members to call the publisher to confirm the content of their entries.  We understand that this will delay until March distribution of the copies of the directory to members who have already ordered them.  Dr. Gordon E. Mercer, international president of the society, asks those who have ordered copies to accept our apology and remain patient, because the result of the extension will be a more complete directory that will be more valuable to all of us.

Michaela M. Dolphin"This directory is the culmination of many years of thinking and planning by the society's officers," the president explained.  "We consider the publication of our directory to be a great milestone event in the effort to bring true 'connectivity' to Pi Gamma Mu.  The more complete this volume is, the better our realization of the countless benefits that our leaders foresaw as they paved the way for this landmark publication."

Mark BenderMark T. Bender and Michaela M. Dolphin, the two student members of the Board of Trustees, stated that they encourage all members--especially current students and recent graduates--to be sure to call Harris Connect and update their records.  "We are excited about the unprecedented access that the directory will provide to members who want to contact classmates, professors, and other friends," they said.  "The directory will certainly be the fundamental source of information about the Pi Gamma Mu Community of Scholars for many years to come."

 

HOW TO CONTACT HARRIS CONNECT

Sue Watters, Pi Gamma Mu's executive director, explained how members can contact Harris Connect.  "If a member has received a post card from Harris Connect, he may call the toll-free telephone number--(800) 653-8765--that is printed on the card.  The customer-service representative will ask the member for the ID number that is also printed there," said Mrs. Watters.  "If a member has not received a post card, she may call (800) 215-5382 and ask to speak to Carol Logue, who will assign an ID number to the member and confirm the member's directory information."

But, she added, the members who have already reserved directories are justified in wanting to receive them, so the extension of time is limited.  She encourages members to call the toll-free number as soon as they read this newsletter to avoid being excluded from the directory.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE DIRECTORY

In addition to the exhaustive list of members, the directory's features include a history of Pi Gamma Mu and photographs of Pi Gamma Mu's founders, officers, and convention participants over the years.  Also, there is a “through the years” section in which members have the opportunity to submit photos and a small excerpt about their lives.  A preview appears on the Web page at http://www.pigammamu.org/pgm-directory-readmore.html .

Please maximize the value of your Pi Gamma Mu membership, and be part of this historic project.  Participate, and support your honor society!

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.
