  • 2019 Elections

    (Posted on behalf of By Donald O. Neubaum, Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division) 


    As Division Chair, I have the honor of working with the Entrepreneurship Nomination Committee to oversee the ENT Division’s elections for our next executive leader (i.e., the Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Chair) and four new Representatives-at-Large (RALs). These positions are critical to the continued success and growth of our Division. Elected volunteers will work with other members of the Executive Committee to lead our Division forward.

    The Nomination Committee received many nominations for both the PDW Chair and RAL positions. From those lists, the Nomination Committee offers two nominees for PDW Chair and 18 nominees for RAL. The 18 RAL nominees were randomly assigned to three groups, and the top vote-getter in each group will win an RAL seat. The highest remaining vote-getter across all three groups will win the fourth RAL seat, which is a new seat earned by the Division based on the number of members we serve.

    The Election website is now open (click here to visit the Election website). Please take this opportunity to vote for the leadership of our Division. Elections will conclude on May 17. I look forward to your participation in this election process. Results will be announced in late May. 

    Finally, I would like to personally thank the work of the entire Nominations Committee. Thanks to Committee Chair, Franz Lorhke, and members James Combs, Alain Fayolle, Mirjam Knockaert, Carlo Salvato, and Martie-Louise Verreynne for developing this strong and diverse slate of candidates.

  • Thank you, Reviewers!

    (Posted on behalf of Peter Klein, Program Chair)

    Putting together the Annual Meeting program would be impossible without the contributions of our excellent reviewers. This year we received 976 paper and symposium submissions – a new record! Most were assigned three reviewers, giving us 2,664 review assignments, and an average of 2.9 assignments per reviewer. (That’s only the ENT Division reviews – many reviewers are helping other Divisions as well.) Thanks to all who are providing this generous service.

  • ENTREPRENEURSHIP DIVISION 2019 ELECTIONS

    (By Christina Guenther, Past Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division & Chair of the ENT Nominations Committee)

    As the immediate Past Division Chair, I have the honor to work with the ENT Nomination Committee to oversee the Division elections for the next executive leader of the division (PDW Chair) and new Representatives-at-Large (RALs).  These positions are central to the continued success and growth of the ENT Division. Those elected will help shape the ENT Division over the next few years and bring their ideas and enthusiasm to enhance the vibrancy, professionalism, and friendliness of the division.

    There will be two steps in the election process (you will be notified through an email sent by the AOM Headquarters):

    STEP 1 – NOMINATIONS: February 1 – February 28

    STEP 2 – ELECTIONS: April 16 – May 17

    In Step 1, all ENT members will be able to nominate (or self-nominate) members for the open positions that I mentioned: PDW Chair and Representative-at-Large. Once the Nomination Committee has reviewed the Division’s nominees for these positions, we will work diligently to finalize the slate of candidates for all positions.

    In Step 2, starting from April 16, the Elections website will be opened for all the members, and this is your opportunity to be part of this important election process by voting for your preferred candidates.  The voting process will end on May 17. By voting, you ensure that the elected officers will represent the preferences of our members.  Elected officials will also feel that they have the mandate of the membership – a very important aspect as they take their positions to help move the ENT Division advance its mission to grow entrepreneurship scholars

    I look forward to your participation in this election process. In late May, we will notify everyone of the results.
  • Reminder – Call for reviewers

    (By Peter Klein) 

    Please sign up to review ENT proposals for the 2019 Academy of Management Annual Meeting! The success of the program depends on the active involvement of ENT Division members in reviewing submissions for the scholarly program. We need your expertise! Besides providing a public service, reviewers also benefit from learning more about the process of research and writing (particularly important for junior scholars).

    To sign up, please follow the link to the AOM registration system  and click on Reviewer Sign-Up System. Be sure to indicate the ENT Division as your top choice, choose your areas of expertise (keywords), and be ready to review 1-3 ENT papers between late January and early February. Please note that even if you have reviewed in the past, you still need to sign up again for the 2019 Annual Meeting.

    Thanks so much for your contribution to our Division.
