Preparing for Chicago!

Our Management Consulting Division is proud to announce you that we are ready to welcome you, MC members, current and prospective ones, in Chicago!

First of all, I would like to thank in person all the submitters, even those who were not accepted, for all the interest given to the Division. For those who have been accepted, welcome aboard fellows! If the program is announced to be a great success, it is due to the great quality of your submissions and the hard work made by our dear and faithful reviewers. So, the 78th Annual Meeting of Academy of Management is coming closer … This year, we will explore the theme of “Improving Lives”, in Chicago. What a beautiful opportunity to create and share knowledge to a theme that perfectly fit our division!  Also, it’s our pleasure and honor to welcome the Distinguished Speech of the Management Consulting Division that will be given next August by Pr. David Boje from New Mexico State University, USA, the founder of Storytelling approach. We are all looking forward to it!

It’s also my duty and pleasure to invite all the members and their family and friends to participate to our traditional Dinner. This year, Dr. Rickie Moore, EM Lyon Business School, France, one of our most dedicated members and treasurer, has been chosen to give the speech. Can’t wait to be there and to have this always pleasant moment together. If you want to be part of it, and I’m sure that it is the case, don’t forget to inform us! Tonya and Eric, Program and PDW chairs, have worked together greatly to find a great place for that evening. Thank you guys!

On a larger scale, I would like to highlight the strong dedication of our board members and representative-at-large who have devoted special time and effort this year to build a better communication system among the board and with our division members. As an example, a priority action plan was set last fall and many of the decided actions are already done or ongoing! Also, this second issue of our division newsletter is a great example of my team involvement. Thank you to Tonya, Eric, Jean, Nancy, Rickie, Rida, Uzonna, Jérémy, Emmanuel, Leslie, Meghan, and Soren. Chicago incoming conference wouldn’t be the same without them!

Looking forward to welcome all of you in Chicago!
