The Board of Governors amended the "no stands" policy on February 10, 2017, and subsequently amended it at its regular meeting on April 21, 2017. The new policy is:
"The Academy of Management does not take political stands. Officers and leaders are bound by this policy and may not make publicly stated political views in the name of the AOM or through use of AOM resources. However, under exceptional circumstances, and with the consensual support of the Executive Committee and approval of the Board of Governors, the President is authorized to issue a statement on behalf of the AOM when a public policy action threatens the existence, purpose, or functioning of the AOM as an organization."
Please read the process for making a request for consideration to take a stand on a public policy action.
