  • 1.  NACRA 2019 - Call for Cases - Deadline 06/17/2019

    Posted 05-14-2019 12:27
    Dear colleagues,

    The deadline to submit a case for the Annual Meeting of the North American Case Research Association (NACRA), to be hosted in Tempe, Arizona from October 10-12, 2019 is rapidly approaching.
    Deadline for ALL submissions of cases is
    June 17, 2019, noon EST

    NACRA Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity to engage with other leading case researchers in a small-group format, to receive detailed and constructive feedback about your case, to participate in presentations from experienced case researchers and educators and to meet the editors of top case publishing venue. The conference is open to all management disciplines, and I can direct you or your colleagues to other tracks if more appropriate.

    Our distinctive round-table track design provides an excellent professional opportunity to enhance your abilities to develop higher quality participant-centered and discussion-based cases in Social Entrepreneurship & Sustainability.

    The Social Entrepreneurship & Sustainability track encourages and welcomes the submissions of teaching cases that relate to socially and environmentally responsible organizations, including but not limited to, social entrepreneurship, social business, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), non-profit organizations' earned income strategies, impact investment, microfinance, social innovation, new legal structures, certified B-Corps, etc. We also encourage submission from different geographical perspectives as NACRA keeps growing its international presence. If your case is still in an early stage, consider submission to our "start-up case" workshop.

    Last year, our track had a record number of submissions and conference participants (thank you to all!) so we are hoping to carry the momentum into this year's conference. 

    Undisguised decision-focused cases based on primary sources (interviews, field visits) are highly preferred. Although cases may be disguised, they must be based on real events and real people in real organizations. Submitted cases may have been previously taught, but must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere (journals, books, online) before the October 10-12, 2019 conference.

    Please check the conference website for submission and formatting instructions
    I look forward to hearing from you and hope to include you and your colleagues on our vibrant track.

    Best wishes,
