    Andrew Van de Ven's Wonderfully Full Life

    Would you like to join in a celebration of Andy's life at the AOM conference in Seattle?  We are serious about celebrating.  No tributes, no eulogies.  Our touchstone is Frank Capra's film, "It's a Wonderful Life."  Andy was a remarkable guy, and his death opens up gaping holes in our academic community.  We will reflect on how differently our academic careers and the Academy of Management might have turned out had Andy not been a part of our lives.  We will talk about keeping his spirit alive.

    If you can attend in person, the PDW will be held on Friday, August 5, from 4:00-5:30 pm, in the Westin Hotel's Puget Sound Room.  If you'd like to participate remotely, please send your email address to Ying <yfs5262@psu.edu>.  She will send you a zoom link.
