    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, and to participate in presentations from experienced case researchers and educators. 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 Impact & Sustainability. 

    Key dates:

    June 10, 2024 Proposals for 'New Views' Panels, Workshops, and Symposia
    June 17, 2024 The submission deadline for Cases, Start-Up Cases, and Pedagogy Track papers ends at 5 pm EDT.
    July 17, 2024 Decisions to authors; Conference early registration opens
    Sept. 14, 2024 Early regular registration deadline (additional conference fee applies after 5pm EDT)
    Sept. 23, 2024 Conference hotel rate cut-off date at 5 pm EDT

    The Social Impact & 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, impact investment, microfinance, social innovation, new legal structures, B Corps, etc. The cases can be related to any functional area (Marketing, Finance, Accounting, HR, Operations, etc.) and any vertical industry. We also encourage submission from different geographical perspectives as NACRA keeps growing its international presence. 

    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 2024 conference.

    Please check the NACRA website for submission and formatting instructions, and don't hesitate to contact me with any case- or conference-related questions.
