To build a vibrant and supportive community of scholars by markedly expanding opportunities to connect and explore ideas.
The Annual Meeting theme this year is "The Power of Words." This theme is intended to sensitize all attendees to the fact that words do have
consequences, good as well as bad, and that the speed and global reach of words
via internet-technologies exponentially increases words’ power. As
researchers, writers, teachers, trainers, coaches, strategists, entrepreneurs,
leaders and managers, we therefore need to know how to most effectively use
words to create positive change. The Annual meeting will be held August 1-5, 2014, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

The next Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management will be held August 1-5, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The theme for the program is The Power of Words
About the theme from the Program Chair, Debra Shapiro.
The 2014 Theme encourages us to consider the effect of words – our words and others’ -- on individuals, teams, organizations nations or even global systems. Words -- in the broad way I am using the term here -- can take the form of spoken utterances, written text, or symbols (e.g., “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” to convey a message of approval versus disapproval, respectively; emoticons used in text-messages to convey emotions; graphs of growing or declining performance-outcomes).
