Why Submit? by Mary Ann Glynn

In these bleak times of the Pandemic, you may be asking yourself: Why should I submit to the AOM Annual Meeting? The meeting is virtual in 2021, and so lacks the opportunity to visit an exotic locale, see long-lost friends and family, or imbibe with your favorite colleagues. And yet, I believe there are still great reasons to submit.


Here are my top three reasons:

  1. Be the Change. Make the AOM Annual Meeting what you want it to be. Submit the kinds of research you want to see at the meetings; volunteer to review to help develop the work you want to see presented; round up like-minded colleagues for a PDW or a symposium. Be creative and take full advantage of zooming and its incredible connectivity.
  2. Build your Connections. One of the major reasons for submitting is to connect with colleagues. Admittedly, this typically has meant in-person, over a meal or a cocktail, but in 2021 it’ll have to be a zoom-tail. While it won’t be the same, it won’t be sitting at home, alone, either. You can interact with fellow professionals and learn a lot.
  3. Improve your Professional Reputation. The Annual Meeting typically draws about 10,000 participants from around the world. What an audience for your work and a venue for your research! Inspire your audience. And get great feedback along the way, from participants and from the reviewers.

Let’s get going! Hope to see you at the meetings.
