ATTEND THE 2017 TRIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION!

November 2-4, 2017

MO This year's convention is sure to be one of the best yet with a spectacular program including student paper presentations (oral presentations and poster sessions), a new Student Leadership Program including guest speakers, workshops, and a decision-making simulation at the Truman Presidential Library, a Chapter Development Showcase including poster presentations by some of Pi Gamma Mu's most active chapters, a keynote address, a welcome reception, an awards ceremony, roundtables and panel discussions, student elections, and more!

Venue - Our hotel, the Marriott Kansas City – Country Club Plaza puts you in the heart of Kansas City's world famous Country Club Plaza, the Midwest's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment district.  Situated between two distinguished art museums, The Nelson Art Gallery and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the Marriott is an ideal location to get together to celebrate Pi Gamma Mu's rich history.  Let the hotel's complimentary shuttle pick you up after a great meal or a shopping trip at the Plaza or travel just a little further to visit Kansas City's Crown Center entertainment district, Union Station and Science City, the historic City Market, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, Westport, the Power and Light district, and much more. 

The room rate is $139 per night (plus applicable taxes) for up to four people per room.  The Marriott Kansas City – Country Club Plaza is located at 4445 Main Street; phone 816-531-3000; link to hotel website.  Attendees can fly into Kansas City International Airport and take the SuperShuttle or UBER.  Reservations are required – call SuperShuttle at 800-258-3826 or get the UBER app for your smartphone.

Funding - Selected student presenters and Student Leadership Program participants will receive funding from Pi Gamma Mu to help cover the costs of attending the convention.  Many colleges and universities also provide funding for students and faculty members to attend professional conferences.  Pi Gamma Mu Chapters also earn funds to attend the convention by initiating new members.  Why not take advantage of this great opportunity to participate in the 2017 Triennial Convention?  Now is the time to start planning your trip to Kansas City!
