The Conference on Commitment brings together a community of scholars interested in the phenomenon of commitment to share and discuss ideas and findings relating to the study of workplace commitments and the conference theme of “Cross-Level Influences and Effects”. The purpose of this conference is to advance the literature by promoting leading-edge thinking on all aspects and forms of commitment in organizational contexts regardless of level, bases, mindsets or targets (e.g., commitment to organizations – employing or other, union, people, teams, occupation, career, goals, change efforts, decisions, values, etc.) The small size of the conference promotes opportunities for informal interaction and dialogue among attendees to facilitate networking, collaboration, the sharing of ideas, and in-depth discussions to explore issues of personal interest. Individuals from any field concerned with the study of commitment are welcome to attend.

The conference will begin Monday afternoon August 1, 2022 with opportunities for collaboration (exiting or new projects) and networking. Conference sessions begin Tuesday morning, August 2nd and end at noon on Wednesday, August 3rd. There will be a single track of presentations of a variety of lengths and formats. Registration is required to attend the conference events. The timing of the conference coincides with the Academy of Management meetings which begin on August 5th in Seattle, WA.

Submissions open December 6, 2021 and the deadline for receipt of submissions is February 4, 2022. The program committee will evaluate the submitted abstracts on a competitive basis. Submitters will be notified of program decisions by the end of March, 2022. For more information, please visit the conference web site. We hope to see you there!
