Call for Nominations

Dear Academy Members:

The Nominating Committee has concluded the open nominations period for the position of Vice President-Elect & Program Chair-Elect and for three Representatives-at-Large to the Board of Governors. Nominations submissions were open from September 28, 2020 to November 3, 2020 for eligible AOM members.

We seek members with broad experience in the divisions and affiliates of the Academy of Management who have demonstrated leadership skills and a strong commitment to volunteer service. (Please note, however, that Past Presidents are not eligible for reelection.)

In conformity with our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, the individual elected to serve as our Vice President-Elect & Program Chair-Elect will assume that position in August, beginning a five-year term as an officer of the Executive Committee. These five years typically involve the following duties: responsibility for the Professional Development Workshops for the annual conference held during the next calendar year; Vice President & Program Chair for the following year's annual conference; President-Elect & Coordinator of Professional Divisions during the following year; President during the fourth year of service, and then a final year as Past President. Newly elected Representatives-at-Large will serve three-year terms, which also begin the August following their election. These Representatives assume a variety of specific committee assignments during their three-year terms and are active contributors to all Board discussions and decisions.

We urge you to consider leaders: who will meet our challenges head on and convert them into opportunities and; elevate the voices of underrepresented groups. As we continue the momentum on AOM’s strategic goals, key leaders who can help sustain these endeavors is vital to our success,

Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro
