2018 was an exciting year for AOM!
The 78th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, held in Chicago, saw a record number of attendees. As a direct result of member feedback, the Specialized Conferences Initiative was launched through two 2018 conferences. Big Data and Managing in a Digital Economy welcomed 400 attendees to Surrey, UK, in April, and From Start-up to Scale-up drew 350 registrants to Tel Aviv, Israel, in December.
AOM Journal content found a home on a dynamic and exciting new platform, and the journal editorial teams hosted many Paper and Idea Development Workshops around the globe, with many more on tap for 2019. This year the AOM developed AOM Insights, an online magazine for management and business leaders built on AOM journal content. Connect@AOM, the AOM’s new interactive online community platform, is now helping facilitate connections, idea sharing, and collaboration across a growing population of Division and Interest Groups and AOM Conference attendees.
Most recently, a new AOM Career Center
was launched, which will be supported through enhanced services at the onsite Career Center at the Annual Meeting in Boston.
