Volunteering at AOM: Becoming a Board Member



"Friendships and connections I made through AOM continue to influence me over time. We remember the people we engage with more so than the extra time spent on robustness checks or responding to reviewers. It’s the interactions with those you know, and the connections with new people, that are energizing, and will continue to influence my career going forward"

Tammy Madsen is a distinguished scholar, Professor of Strategic Management and Innovation, and holds the W. M. Keck Foundation Chair at the Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University. As a member of AOM for over 30 years, she has made significant contributions to the field of management and has been recognized with numerous awards and accolades within the Academy, with a colorful history of volunteerism. After the last Annual Meeting, she began her term as Vice President-Elect/Program Chair-Elect on the Board of Governors at AOM.


Serving on the Board of Governors now has given her a valuable perspective on AOM. "It’s not about you, it’s about the 20,000 members," she emphasized. According to Tammy, one of the most important elements of this role is remembering that everyone is a volunteer, and it's not about individual success, but rather improving things for the Academy as a whole. “Serving on the Board is like working with the best faculty at your institution, because everyone is striving towards the common goal of enhancing the Academy and expanding opportunities for our members to interact, collaborate, and pursue ideas.” She also noted it’s a great way to put her work on strategy into action.
