    The HR Division is accepting nominations for student representatives to serve on the HR Division Executive Committee. The deadline for nominations is June 15, 2020. Instructions for applying are listed below. We will be selecting 2 new students to begin in August 2020. Faculty are encouraged to nominate interested PhD students from your programs. Students are welcome to self-nominate, but you do need a letter of support from your professor. Serving as an HR Division student representative provides a great opportunity to learn more about the activities of the HR Division, get involved in the profession, and network and socialize with HR Division colleagues.

    The purpose of the student representative position is to facilitate student involvement with the HR Division Executive Committee and provide a student perspective regarding HR Division discussions, decisions, and programming. Student representatives will serve the HR Division in the same function and fashion as other Executive Committee members.

    The HR Division student representative is a two-year appointment with terms beginning and ending in August, at the Academy of Management (AOM) annual meeting. Typically, there will be four representatives in total. Each year, two representatives' terms will end and two new representatives' terms will begin.

    One of the most important goals of the student representative position is to represent the HR Division's membership. We encourage students of all races, ethnicities, gender, and nationalities to apply.

    • Participation in the November mid-year meeting to assist with Division planning and programming.

    • Participation in email discussions and conference calls as needed.
    • Attendance of HR Division AOM activities and assistance with various activities that support a warm and welcoming atmosphere (e.g., greeting members, distributing HR promotional items, welcoming students to events).

    • Must be a member of the HR Division.
    • Completed at least two years in a PhD program related to management, human resources, and/or industrial/organizational psychology.
    • Be able to attend at least one of the two annual meetings during their term as representatives.
