New Member Orientation

The Academy of Management holds New Member Orientation Sessions for new members of the Academy at its annual meeting. This year it will be held on Friday evening, August 4th, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency, Hanover Hall C/D (LL2) next to the Exhibit Hall. See the 2017 AoM New Member Orientation for more details.

The Management Consulting Division does not have a formal new member orientation at this time. A great way to meet our membership is our annual Members & Friends Dinner, a wonderful opportunity to socialize, meet Division members and learn about the Division and its history. Each year, there is also an after-dinner talk by a respected member of our Division/Profession. Over the years, our Members & Friends Dinner speakers have included Harry Levinson, Warren Bennis, Andre Delbecq, Billie Alban and Barbara Bunker, Edgar Schein, Mike Beer and Peter Sorensen. The 2017 speaker is Flemming Poulfelt of the Copenhagen Business School and a former MC Division Chair. The dinner will take place on Sunday August 6 from 19:30-23:00 at Nikolai's Roof at Hilton Atlanta and we strongly encourage you to sign up for it! You can do so by following this link: https://secure.aom.org/PDWReg.

Another excellent way to meet our membership is to attend our Division Social Hour at the Annual Conference. Watch the program schedule for this sparkling event.

If you are interested in consulting as a topic, or possibly joining the MC Division, or just want to meet some interesting Academy members, please contact any of our Executive Committee members. Join us for a PDW, symposium or paper session during the Annual meeting.
