Registration, Attendance, and Guest Policy

In order to ensure maximum benefit to Annual Meeting attendees, we ask that all conference participants read the following Academy of Management (AOM) Registration Policy. Members and non-members participating in Academy of Management activities, including the Annual Meeting, are expected to adhere to AOM's Code of Ethics.

Registration Information

An AOM membership valid though 31 August is required to attend the Annual Meeting. Registration is individual and non-transferable. The Annual Meeting registration fee does not include membership, membership renewal, registration for the Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM), or registration for Professional Development Workshops that require separate enrollment or additional fees. You must first be registered for the Annual Meeting to register for the Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM) and Professional Development Workshops. Please note that you are solely responsible for arranging travel, meals, registration, housing accommodation, and paying the associated fees for each. These fees are additional and are the responsibility of everyone attending the Annual Meeting.  

Registration Payment Information

AOM accepts payments via PayPal and credit cards including American Express, Mastercard, and Visa through the online registration system only. AOM accepts checks in USD drawn on US banks. AOM will not accept payment via e-email or e-mail attachments due to PCI compliance guidelines. AOM cannot accept purchase orders, ACH, or wire transfers. While onsite at an event, AOM cannot accept checks or cash payments for registration fees. 

Registration Cancellations and Refunds

To cancel an Annual Meeting registration for any reason, the registrant must submit a cancellation request in writing to AOM at The registration fee is refundable until 16 July 2024 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. Registration for the Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM) is separate and will not be automatically cancelled with an Annual Meeting cancellation request. To cancel a Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM) registration for any reason, the registrant must additionally request in writing to AOM at The TLC@AOM registration fee is refundable until 16 July 2024 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) and is subject to a $25 processing fee.

We are unable to provide a refund for cancellation after 16 July 2024 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) due to contractual obligations and guarantees. This also extends any Professional Development Workshops and social events requiring separate enrollment. Exceptions will not be made for registrants with cancelled travel arrangements or who require a visa and registered before acquiring one.

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 6-8 weeks of receipt. 


Visa Information

A citizen of a foreign country entering the United States generally must first obtain a visa. Advance travel planning and early visa application prior to registration is highly encouraged. Please visit our Visa Information page to learn more.



All attendees, including individuals scheduled on the official AOM Annual Meeting Program, are required to have an AOM membership valid through 31 August and pay the appropriate registration fee to participate in any capacity at the Annual Meeting. This includes authors, editors, award recipients, coordinators, discussants, facilitators, hosts, distinguished speakers, moderators, organizers, speakers, participants, presenters, panelists, job interviewers, secretaries, treasurers, and any division-elected or appointed volunteers. 

By registering to attend the Annual Meeting you grant permission to AOM to take and use your photo, audio, and/or video in marketing and promotional pieces, written publications, videos, and the association's website for an indefinite period.


Name Badge

All 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.


Guest Policy

There is a limit of 1 (one) guest per registrant. Guests are permitted to attend the Annual Meeting through the purchase of an $85 Guess Pass, which includes access to: the Exhibit Hall, the Annual Meeting Opening Reception Friday evening, Networking Hubs with morning coffee breaks, and complimentary Wi-Fi (in designated areas). Guests must wear their identifying Guest badge to enter the Exhibit Hall, Reception and Networking Hubs. Guests without an official conference badge will be asked to show proof of registration or to register for the conference. A Guest refers to a spouse, child 18 years or older, partner, or companion who is not an active or former member of AOM and is not associated with AOM. Children under the age of 18 do not require a name badge and must be supervised at all times.  
Please note Guests are not permitted access to any Annual Meeting sessions, workshops, events, or group functions, for any reason, at any time. To attend sessions, a guest must have an active AOM membership valid through 31 August and register for the Annual Meeting. Failure to follow Guest Policy will result in removal from the conference and will subject registration violators to a formal ethics complaint. 


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. For local childcare options please visit our Chicago Travel page.
