Divisions and Interest Groups

Divisions and Interest groups (DIGs) reflect a broad range of member interests within 25 management disciplines. They provide collective relationships among members within a particular subject area who share similar aspects of research, interests and professional scholarship. Each DIG offers a specific range of services, educational sessions and social events at the Annual Meeting. DIG websites offer resources such as professional development opportunities, recognition programs, and member communications specific to each DIG.

What’s the Difference Between a Division and an Interest Group?

Divisions focus on established bodies of scholarship and have a unique intellectual contribution to the field. Divisions are comprised of members who regularly make scholarly contributions applicable to the management field through firmly rooted research recorded in scholarly books and journals. 

Interest Groups focus on emerging trends within distinct bodies of scholarship. Interest Groups are organized around trends not represented within the Divisions and represent an area to which AOM members are beginning or likely to make scholarly contributions.

Changing your Division or Interest Group Selection

An AOM Membership allows you to join two Divisions and/or interest groups. Additional DIGs can be added for $11 USD per Division; $7 USD per interest group at anytime during the term. Additional Divisions and interest groups can be added or changed at the time of renewal. To switch one of your DIGs outside of your renewal period, complete the Division Change Request Form and email it to Member Services at membership@aom.org. To add or change one or more of your DIGs, login to your account and click on My Profile in the upper right corner and follow the link to add or change a Division and/or Interest group.
