HAS YOUR CHAPTER VOTED YET?
Chapters need to vote for new members of Psi Chi’s Board of Directors by March 15.
Make sure your chapter conducts this important activity at a chapter meeting before
this deadline. Your faculty advisor can log on to http://psichi.org/ChapterAdmin/Vote.aspx
to show chapter members the candidates’ position statements and bios. After your
chapter votes, record the choices for President-Elect and, if applicable, regional
Vice-President (this year the Vice-President elections are in the Southeastern,
Southwestern, and Midwestern regions). Remember, chapters have to vote to be eligible
for a Model Chapter award. Voting closes on March 15.
FACEBOOK T-SHIRT CAPTION CONTEST—WE HAVE A WINNER!
Congratulations to Tonya Lovell Hatter of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
who submitted the winning caption—“Sometimes an ink blot is just an ink blot.” The
winning T-shirt caption will be available soon on the Psi Chi merchandise website.
Meanwhile, check out last year's member contest winner—“It's not Greek, it's Geek”

of language by Dr. Herbert Terrace of Columbia University, Psi Chi’s Distinguished
Lecturer on March 1, the Chapter Exchange and Awards Ceremony on March 2, and workshops
on preparing for/applying to graduate school on March 3. Go to
