Volunteering with Academy of Management
Each year, Academy of Management (AOM) members from around the world volunteer to serve in both short and long-term capacities. Our volunteers contribute to the collective future of the organization by joining in the planning, direction and decision making of AOM’s programs. Volunteering connects you with others who have specific interests and disciplines, which will help you to expand your network and review submitted research. By volunteering with AOM, you contribute to the value of our scholarly communities. The collective involvement of members is what makes the AOM a valuable network. Enrich your experience by providing individual perspective while strengthening the foundation of AOM as a whole. As a member, you are invited to influence the collective future of the organization. Volunteer participation and involvement in AOM is welcomed and encouraged!

A History Based on Volunteerism
AOM was founded by a group of dedicated scholars to represent and grow teaching and research of management scholarship. For decades, AOM was solely volunteer run. Today, members dedicating their time and talent continues to be integral to AOM’s core of operations. We thank our hundreds of volunteers!
Our volunteer leadership structure has ensured that the future of AOM is shaped by its members. As a professional and voluntary association, AOM strives to create community by building networks that facilitate learning and open exchanges. Volunteering also provides a personal return on investment such as the ability to touch and influence the direction of the AOM, growing your own leadership skills and building relationships with new contacts. AOM's long history of volunteerism has helped to position it as a global leader in the advancement of management, and we celebrate members for their volunteerism, their service in leadership capacities, and their professional accomplishments through our Awards and Recognition activities.
