2020 Triennial International Convention Rescheduled for 2021.

PositionPi Gamma Mu News

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the 2020 Triennial International Convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Convention has been rescheduled for November 4-6, 2021 in Washington, DC. Student research papers will still be accepted. Consider submitting your research paper NOW!

Pi Gamma Mu has been forced to postpone its 2020 Triennial International Convention for one year by the global viral pandemic and actions taken to combat it. However, student members are still encouraged to submit completed social science research papers for presentation at the 2020 Convention.

All accepted papers will then be ranked by the Committee of Readers. Up to the top ten rated papers will receive consideration for publication in the International Social Science Review (ISSR), and if published will be accepted for oral presentation at the 2021 International Convention in Washington, DC. Early submissions are strongly encouraged.

All submissions must include a completed cover page (see example below), including the title of the paper, the author's name, institutional affiliation, email address, telephone number, AND the email address and phone number of their Pi Gamma Mu chapter sponsor AND/OR the professor for whom the paper was originally written.

The paper itself must include none of the identifying information from the cover page other than the title of the paper. Completed papers should be at least
