Planning your Academy of Management Attendance

For those of you who are attending the Academy of Management conference two weeks from now, I have suggested events for your schedule.

First off, if you haven’t found it already, there’s a really helpful interactive program planning tool at the AOM site (see “Create My Program” in top left-hand corner of screen). It lets you browse the program by Division, search by keyword and then create and print your own personalized schedule. It’s really nifty.

Between now and the conference I’ll post in more detail about what OCIS events. Meanwhile, as you are putting together your schedule, let me point out the following items.


OCIS Welcome Session – Saturday, Aug 4, 6PM – 8PM


OCIS Gathering and Welcome – Monday, Aug 6 8AM – 8:30AM

OCIS Keynote – Monday, Aug 6 – 4:10PM – 5:20PM

OCIS Business Meeting – Monday, Aug 6 5:30PM – 6:30PM

OCIS Social Hour – Monday, Aug 6 6:30PM – 8:00PM


OCIS Informal Social Event – Tuesday Aug 7 5:30PM – 10:30PM

Here’s a few brief notes…

– The key events to attend are the Monday afternoon/evening block. I recommend the keynote, business meeting and social. (If you have unavoidable conflicts, attend what you can.)

– If you are in town on Saturday, come to the Welcome reception.

– If you’re awake early on Monday morning, you might score some free food at the Gathering and Welcome. 🙂

– As a “student contingent” we’ll figure out a specific time/location to meet as part of informal Tuesday night social event at Noddinghead Brewery. If you’re in town on Tuesday night, plan on being there!

    This helps as the AoM page provides so many interesting sessions that keeping track of what NOT TO MISS gets difficult 🙂


  2. My notes from emails suggest that AOM OCIS Consortium starts on Friday, Aug 3, 6-8pm, followed by dinner, and Saturday Aug 4, 9am – 5:30pm, followed by a reception 6-8pm.
