The Board of Governors agreed to make a final decision about the physical meeting no later than 7 May 2020 in order to engage with division and interest group and other program leaders more closely. This decision has significant (and unprecedented) implications for members, divisions and the overall Academy as a community. As of 30 April 2020, the early rounds of engagement with division and interest group and other program leaders have taken place. A survey of members has also been conducted.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the AOM Board of Governors cancelled the 2020 physical meeting of the Academy of Management, scheduled for 7-11 August 2020 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A modified virtual meeting is under development. Please see the 7 May letter from AOM President, Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro, for more information.
