Opportunity this year at Academy of Management

The Academy of Management (AoM) meetings provide a unique opportunity to gather as public and non-profit management scholars and to connect with thousands of scholars from the broader discipline of management. The 2018 theme for the AoM annual meeting in Chicago from August 10-14, 2018 is “Improving Lives.” This theme provides an important opportunity for the Public and Nonprofit Division to showcase our distinctive contributions to the broader world of management.


You are invited to submit a proposal for a professional development workshop that would strengthen scholars’ professional skills. We are particularly interested in workshops that improve scholars’ efforts in any of the following:

·       Developing research measures and methodologies for assessing social welfare and/or public value

·       Creating high-quality, community-engaged action research initiatives

·       Teaching through community-engaged methodologies that create social welfare and/or public value

·       Developing theory regarding the connections between management and individual and social welfare

·       Incorporating and empowering the voices of the underprivileged in policy, research, and organizational practice

We will give special consideration to proposals that:

·       Encourage discussion or debate with colleagues who study primarily for-profit organizations

·       Focus on publication opportunities outside the public and nonprofit specialist journals

·       Promote collaboration with scholars or other interest groups that have not traditionally focused on the public and nonprofit sectors.

·       Showcase and promote skillsets, perspectives, or approaches developed by public and nonprofit scholars but applicable to the broader Academy audience

The aforementioned preferences notwithstanding, we will duly consider all proposals that seek to enhance the professional development of public and non-profit division members.


The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time). This is a firm deadline. Please consider submitting a proposal for a professional development workshop. The call for Public and Nonprofit Division professional development workshop submissions is available here:


Please also consider submitting a paper or panel for the conference. This year’s theme makes this an opportune time to connect with other management scholars who are interested in public and non-profit research. The call for Public and Nonprofit Division paper and panel submissions is available here:
