2020 Pi Gamma Mu Chapter Showcase Poster Session

Purpose: This session is designed to feature posters from Pi Gamma Mu chapters that exemplify the diverse strengths of our chapters, to create a forum for exchanging ideas regarding a wide range of chapter activities, and to promote interaction among participants and attendees. It is a chance for convention attendees to come together and use poster displays to share the good work they do.

Poster: A poster consists of an exhibit of materials that reports activities or information in visual and summary form. During a poster session, the presenter(s) stand by the display while others come and view the poster and interact with the presenter(s). In this way, chapter poster presentations provide a unique platform that facilitates discussion of chapter activities, generates ideas and exchanges, and allows meeting attendees to browse through highlights of chapter practices and ideas.

Content: PGM chapters are diverse and promote scholarship, leadership, and service in a variety of ways. This session offers a venue for chapters to feature their various experiences, activities, and strengths. Posters may provide a general overview of a chapter's activities for a previous year or focus on a particular type of activity a chapter wants to share with others. This may include programming, initiation ceremonies, recruitment strategies, fundraising, a chapter's history, and/or service projects.

Submission Information:

Poster proposals are welcome anytime but are due no later than September 15, 2020.
