Volunteer to welcome a new AOM member

    In preparation for this year's Academy of Management meeting, we are coordinating the annual "Welcome-a-Member" program for the OB Division. The program is designed to extend a warm welcome to new members attending the AOM annual meeting for the first time by pairing them with a more experienced OB Division member.

    We ask that you consider signing up to serve as a volunteer this year. This entails meeting virtually with 1-2 new members to offer perspective on how to navigate our large Division (i.e., ~30-minute virtual chat). Your participation will be especially helpful this year, as more new OB Division members than usual are attending AOM for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Anybody who has been to the annual meeting at least once has all the experience needed for this role. If you are interested in supporting this program, please let us know via the brief survey below (to the extent possible, we try to match people based upon research interests/fit). The survey will close at the end of the day on Friday, June 24th.


    The OB Division greatly appreciates your commitment to making our program of events a success and fostering broader connections within our community.


    Best regards,

    Amy Bartels, Fadel Matta, and Travis Grosser
