Introductory Guide to AOM and the Annual Meeting

The following guide is a brief overview and user manual for first-time attendees of the Academy of Management's Annual Meeting. This guide was first written by AOM member Alan Meyer in 2012 as "A Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Academy of Management." It was written to orient a group of 25 young African scholars who were about to make their first visit to the Academy of Management and assumes that the reader had no familiarity with AOM or attending a large, academic conference.

Thank you Alan for your inspiration in guiding our new members!
