2020 Professional Development Workshops: Call for Proposals
The Public and Nonprofit Division (PNP) invites creative Professional Development Workshop (PDW) proposals that are interactive, innovative, and will enhance the skills of public and non-profit scholars and practitioners. Submitters may want to develop workshops that relate to the 2020 All-Academy conference theme of "Broadening Our Sight."
Professional Development Workshop (PDW) sessions at the annual Academy of Management meeting will be held Friday, August 7th and Saturday, August 8th, 2020 from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM.
We are particularly interested in PDW proposals focused on any of the following:
We especially welcome PDW workshops that leverage the unique nature of the Academy of Management meetings to enhance communication between Public and Nonprofit Division researchers and the broader community of management scholars. Proposals that are likely to engage scholars from other divisions in topics of interest to public and nonprofit scholars and create the capacity for multi or interdisciplinary methods or understandings will be given top priority.
The aforementioned preferences notwithstanding, we will duly consider all proposals that seek to enhance the professional development of the Public and Nonprofit Division's members.
PDWs provide the opportunity to experiment with new models and ideas for sessions that do not fit within the confines of the regular program. PDWs can take place on-site at a conference hotel or off-site at another location in the community. However, submitters should take care not to create proposals for PDWs that would be more appropriate in other conference formats such as panel sessions, symposia, and caucuses. If the primary purpose of your proposal is to gather scholars for a discussion or to present theories, ideas, or concepts, the PDW is probably not the appropriate forum. See this page for more information about different formats at AoM.
Before submitting, please think about the following five questions as they pertain to a PDW.
Proposal Guidelines In your PDW proposal, please include the following sections:
The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time). Please submit your PDW proposals at https://aom.org/annualmeeting/submission/ . Only submissions through the electronic system will be accepted. The submission system is scheduled to open in late November 2019 and proposals will be considered on a rolling basis. Please note that there is limited space on the PDW program, so acceptance of proposals is competitive.
