(posted on behalf of Donald O. Neubaum, Past Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division and Chair of the ENT Nominations Committee)
As the immediate Past Division Chair, I have the distinct honor to work with the ENT Nomination Committee to oversee the Division’s 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. Our elected officials will help shape the ENT Division over the next few years and bring their time, ideas, energy, 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, 2020 – February 28, 2020
STEP 2 – ELECTIONS: April 16, 2020 – May 17, 2020
IN STEP 1, all Division members will be able to nominate (or self-nominate) members for the open positions previously mentioned: PDW Chair and Representative-at-Large. Once the Nomination Committee has reviewed all the Division’s nominees for these positions, we will work diligently to finalize the slate of candidates for election.
IN STEP 2, starting on April 16, the Elections website will be opened to 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 their responsibility to serve the membership – a very important responsibility as they take their positions to help the 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.
