The submission deadline for this year's Southern Management Association meeting is TODAY - Monday, May 9th and I am writing to invite you to submit a paper, symposium, and/or a Professional Development Institute (PDI) proposal for consideration in the SMA 2022 program. The SMA 2022 meeting will take place October 18 - 22, 2022 in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Little Rock Marriott. You can learn more about some of the things we're looking forward to seeing and doing in Little Rock on SMA's webpage: https://smgmt.org/littlerock/
What's more, we're confident that you'll experience the meaningful knowledge exchanges, fellowship, and networking experiences that make the SMA conference special.
How Can You Be Involved?
1. SUBMIT: The quality of our program is directly dependent on your active engagement! We need you to submit your manuscripts, symposia, and PDI. The deadline for submissions is -TODAY- Monday, May 9th.
2. REVIEW: Regardless of whether you have something to submit this year, we also need you to volunteer to review! We will limit the number of papers each reviewer receives to no more than three papers per track, but need a large reviewer pool to ensure this can happen. Please note that if you are a submitting author, you will be expected to serve as a reviewer. Doing so is one small way to repay the generosity of the volunteers who will review your work. Plus, SMA recognizes our best reviewers with a number of awards that look great on CVs!
The direct link to submit manuscripts, symposia, and PDIs, and to volunteer to review is: https://www.xcdsystem.com/sma/abstract/index.cfm
If you submitted or reviewed last year, you already have a profile created in the system. In this case, your same username and password can be used to log into the 2022 Conference Portal. If any of your information has changed, please update it at this time.
To learn more about conference participation, submitting a manuscript, and volunteering to review, please visit our website at: https://smgmt.org/annual-meeting/.
3. ATTEND: Please plan to be a part of SMA's 2022 big entrance in Little Rock! We hope to see both existing and new members there!
