Winfield, KS — (ReleaseWire) — 03/09/2022 — After postponing the Pi Gamma Mu 2020 convention, the 2021 Virtual Triennial International Convention, which was held November 3-6, 2021, proved to be a great success. Although virtual conferences have become common over the past couple of years, the 2021 Pi Gamma Mu Virtual Triennial International Convention lived up to its billing both virtually and internationally. Attendees experienced keynote addresses, paper presentations, the opportunity to participate in the popular Leadership Development Program, and a variety of poster presentations.

While a selection committee evaluated student paper submissions, any Pi Gamma Mu member, whether a current student or any life-long member, could present a poster. According to Brad Tennant, who chaired the poster sessions, “The presentations featured a variety of social science disciplines with several international presenters coming from chapters thus reflecting that Pi Gamma Mu is truly the preeminent international honor society in the social sciences.” Furthermore, recorded presentations accommodated presenters who came from various time zones and allowed others to listen during the assigned sessions or at a later time. In addition to the research posters, posters that reflected various chapter activities, history, service projects, or programs were also presented. All poster presentations were limited to no more than ten minutes.

The following are the topics, presenters, and their Pi Gamma Mu university chapter.
