No. The former policy was: "The Academy of Management does not take political stands. Officers and leaders are bound by this policy and may not make publicly stated political views in the name of the AOM or through use of AOM resources."
This former policy applied to all officers, including those in the Divisions and Interest Groups, Activity Committees, Theme Committees, and Journals. Moral, academic, pragmatic, and other arguments were barred if the subject was also political. Breaches of the former and current policies are ethics violations under the AOM Code of Ethics. AOM Officers and Governors are further bound by certain principles of collaboration, process, and adherence to policy and changes in policy.
