Affiliated & Associated Societies of the Academy of Management

For the purpose of sharing and learning, the Academy of Management maintains cooperative relationships and networks with other societies that are committed to advancing the scholarship and practice of management.

Affiliated and associated societies operate autonomously, conducting their own meetings and programs, which give members an opportunity to interact with colleagues who share commonality of culture, language, or geographic location. Individuals join affiliated and associated societies separately; membership dues for affiliated and associated societies are not included in Academy dues.

Affiliated societies are organizations that share a common purpose and operate in very close spirit to the Academy, espousing similar values and processes, and with activities that are in keeping with the aim and intent of our mission, bylaws and articles of incorporation. This arrangement is confirmed through an affiliation agreement.

Currently the Academy has five U.S. affiliates: the EasternMidwestSouthwest, and Western Academies of Management, and the Southern Management Association, as well as three affiliates based outside of the U.S.: the AsiaIberoamerican, and Indian Academies of Management, and the National Honorary and Professional Management Fraternity Sigma Iota Epsilon.

Associated societies broadly agree to cooperate with the Academy in some manner on an area of common interest. Currently, associated organizations include the: Administrative Sciences Association of CanadaAustralian and New Zealand Academy of ManagementBrazilian Academy of ManagementBritish Academy of ManagementEuropean Academy of ManagementEuropean Group for Organizational Studies, International Association for Chinese Management Research, and Academia de Ciencias Administrativas (ACACIA)


Federations are organizations in which the Academy participates as a dues-paying member. Currently the Academy belongs to one federation, the International Federation of Scholarly Associations of Management (IFSAM).
