COVID-19 Policy

To keep the AOM community safe at the Annual Meeting, the Academy of Management is requiring that all in-person attendees participating on-site in Seattle provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination* in order to be eligible to attend. Attendees will be required to upload proof of vaccination using ShareMy.Health, a platform that provides secure collection of vaccination records. Once registered, attendees receive an email invitation with instructions.

If you have a medical or religious exemption from vaccination, you will be required to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test, administered within 72 hours of entry to the Annual Meeting, with the additional need to test again after 72 hours of attendance. Negative tests will also be collected via ShareMy.Health to ensure secure compliance.

Verification of vaccination and tests is performed independently by ShareMy.Health; information is not viewed by, shared with, or recorded by AOM or AOM staff.

By registering for and attending the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, attendees understand and agree that participation in-person in Seattle, WA is entirely voluntary. Attendees agree to comply with all COVID-related procedures implemented by Academy of Management, the city of Seattle, and the Seattle Convention Center (previously known as the Washington State Convention Center) based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This may include, but is not limited to: providing proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, proof of a negative test, wearing a mask, and observing social distancing requirements and restrictions placed on certain activities that carry higher COVID-related risk.  Attendees understand that COVID-related requirements put in place by the City of Seattle may change at any time.

The Academy of Management will also require registrants to agree to submit a Personal Responsibility Waiver at the time of registration. AOM has the right and duty to restrict access to anyone in violation of conference center, city, or state guidelines and will continue to require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test for exempt individuals to participate in-person at the conference regardless of requirements in Seattle or King County, WA. The Academy of Management is not liable for any COVID-19 related costs or expenses that may arise during or after the Annual Meeting. Any costs associated with testing, quarantine/isolation, medical appointments, or hospitalization related to COVID-19 are the responsibility of the attendee.

Registration Cancellations and Refunds

To cancel an Annual Meeting registration for any reason, the registrant must submit a cancellation request in writing to the Academy of Management at The registration fee is refundable until 18 July 2022 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) and is subject to an $85 processing fee. When registration is cancelled, any Professional Development Workshops or social events for which the attendee has registered will also be cancelled. We are unable to provide a refund for cancellation after 18 July 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) due to contractual obligations and guarantees. This also extends to any Professional Development Workshops and social events requiring separate enrollment. All eligible refunds will be issued in the original form of payment. If the information on the card has changed, you must contact the issuing bank with any questions. If the payment was made by check, a refund check will be issued to the original account associated with the check payment. Refunds are non-transferrable and cannot be applied to any future service, conference, or event. Refunds will be processed within 2-4 weeks of receipt.


Guest Policy

Due to the heightened safety and screening measures and our prioritization of the health and safety of registrants in accordance with Seattle mandates and strict crowd/group requirements, guests are not permitted in conference sessions, events, or group functions and will not be issued guest badges. Guests are not permitted access to the convention center and AOM functions.

Childcare Policy

The Academy of Management strives to support its members through professional activities at the Annual Meeting. Due to the high safety and security needs, significant cost, and limited interest, the Academy of Management does not provide on-site childcare services. If attendees bring a dependent to the Annual Meeting, the attendee is required to make on-site childcare accommodations.


Name Badge

All conference attendees must wear official conference name badges to all Annual Meeting sessions, workshops, receptions, and events. Access to conference functions will not be permitted without a badge. Name badges are provided to all registered attendees. Members without an official conference badge will be asked to show proof of registration or to register for the conference. Accepted forms of proof include a registration receipt or a registration confirmation email. Failure to show proof of registration will result in removal from the conference and will subject registration violators to a formal ethics complaint. To facilitate interaction between participating exhibitors and attendees, AOM prints a bar code with each nametag which exhibitors can scan to retain that attendee's contact information, like what is found on a business card: name, postal address, email address, and phone number. This is an entirely voluntary exchange of information. Members who do not want their information given to an exhibitor in this way should not present their code for scanning. Exhibitors will not be able to access attendee data without their consent.
