by Diane M. Sullivan
ENT Division Secretary
The 2020 Mid-winter Meeting of the Entrepreneurship Division was hosted this January by the Entrepreneurship Division Chair, Dawn DeTienne, at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Participating in this year’s Mid-winter Meeting were members of the Entrepreneurship Division’s leadership spanning the globe from Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the USA.
Throughout the meeting, the leadership focused on planning the Division’s activities and events for 2020 Academy of Management Conference including, in part, planning the Division consortia and social events.
A number of special topics were emphasized at this year’s meeting. One notable special topic centered on the establishment of Division’s Sponsorship committee. The purpose of the Sponsorship committee is to provide consistent and ongoing management and engagement with Division sponsors. Division sponsors are critical to allowing the Division to pursue and achieve Division goals and, especially, to continue delivering substantive value to the membership.
Other topics that received special attention at the 2020 Mid-winter Meeting included: 1) activities associated with the upcoming Division 5-year review including a review of the Division by-laws and Domain Statement, 2) ways to improve the number of nominations received for Division awards, and 3) ensuring inclusion in Division consortia participation.
The 2020 Entrepreneurship Division Mid-winter Meeting was a productive and fun event for the Division’s leadership, all of whom thank Division Chair, Dawn DeTienne and everyone at Colorado State University for hosting this important annual meeting.
