2020 Leadership

Leadership and Volunteerism

The Academy of Management has a long-standing and rich tradition of volunteerism. Today, this tradition continues as thousands of members contribute their time and talents toward advancing the Academy’s initiatives. Despite increasing pressures and demands on members’ time and attention, a healthy and vibrant volunteer community emerges each year to facilitate the work of the Academy’s Divisions and Interest Groups, committees and task forces, online and extended communities, meetings, and publications. Volunteer members are truly the lifeblood of the Academy—governing, leading, and managing initiatives that connect thousands of management scholars across the globe.

We cannot thank our Academy leaders and volunteers enough for their incredible efforts in 2020 as we collectively faced and overcame enormous challenges during a global pandemic.

The following AOM volunteers served between August 2019 - August 2020. Our current volunteer leaders can be found in the Leadership Directory.
