See you in D.C.

ichaela DolphinThe Pi Gamma Mu triennial international conference is just a few weeks away and I hope to see many of you there. The deadline for submitting papers and proposals for posters is fast approaching. As a past presenter, I can say that submitting my work for consideration was one of the best decisions I made.  The chance to present research to fellow members and receive feedback is invaluable.  This year, presenters will have the amazing opportunity to present their research in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building.  I hope that everyone will consider submitting work for selection.  For full guidelines on submitting a proposal or a paper please see the article entitled "Call for Student Papers."

For the past three years it has been my honor to serve, along with Mark Bender, as a Student Representative to the Board of Trustees.  Many changes and additions have occurred during my time on the board that every member of this amazing society should be excited and proud of.   The biggest addition to Pi Gamma Mu is the new directory of members.  This project took years and the cooperation of every past and present inductee, not to mention the board and Harris Connect.  The directory is now available in print and electronic format, has up-to-date information on all alumni of this society, and is an amazing networking resource. 

The other major addition, especially dear to me, was the launch of Pi Gamma Mu’s CafePress storefront.  This storefront, the brainchild of First Vice President Barry Friedman, executive director Sue Watters, and me, offers a wide variety of Pi Gamma Mu merchandise, not just shirts, and all proceeds benefit Pi Gamma Mu scholarships and grants.  Our Web site has also undergone a major change and has been updated to include more information about Pi Gamma Mu, about past board members, a Hall of Fame page, and many other resources for all members and sponsors.

For the past three years it has been amazing to see, and read about, all the community service projects that various chapters have organized or participated in.  I have always been proud of all the time and effort Pi Gamma Mu members give to various communities.  This past year has been especially difficult for so many in various areas of the world.   Reading about the outreach of so many chapters, and contributing as part of the board, to others has truly shown that Pi Gamma Mu is committed to community service.  As my term comes to a close I hope that Pi Gamma Mu has become a better society because of my service and I hope that the trust given to me by my fellow members was not misplaced.

Student Trustee
