Calling all AOM members!
I am the All Academy Chair for the 2009 Academy where the theme will be "Green Management Matters." Most of the sessions to be held during the Sunday program will be All-Academy sessions, including Symposia and PDWs. In order to make this a success, I am asking for your brief assistance in two areas.
1. I want to encourage you to propose an All-Academy Symposia or PDW. Beyond the usual criteria of being applicable to the conference theme and being of interest across divisions (see A Guide For Creating And Managing A Good Professional Development Workshop), we are looking for proposals that are creative and innovative. Alternative formats? Business, government, foundation or NGO involvement? The more creative and innovative the better. You can send proposals to:
. Even if you just have an idea at the moment, I'd be glad to kick it around if you send it to this address.
2. I am looking for people from multiple divisions to serve on a committee to evaluate and select the final Symposia and PDWs for the 2009 All Academy program. Again, interested people can send their intentions to me at
I thank you in advance for your assistance.
Best regards, Andy Hoffman
