Dear IM Division Members, 

Welcome to the International Management Division. I am honored and delighted to serve as Division Chair this year and to work with you and with the other members of the Executive Committee (Immediate-Past Division chair Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra, Division Chair Elect Aya Chacar, Division Program Chair Elizabeth Rose, and Division PDW Chair Anu Phene) to make the division a valuable source of relationships and information.

I want to thank everyone for contributing to the success of the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management we held in Anaheim, California. In particular, I want to thank Aya Chacar and Elizabeth Rose for organizing excellent academic and PDW programs. The quality of the papers and panels presented, PDWs, and reviews are evidence of your commitment to advancing the goals of the Division and Academy. We are very grateful to the committees for helping with the programs by organizing social events, promoting the division, communicating with members, determining award winners, and creating sessions, among many things, and to our sponsors for supporting our numerous awards: PWC Strategy& Eminent Scholar Award; IM Division D’Amore-McKim School of Business, Northeastern University Award for the Best Dissertation in International Management; IM Division FIU Emerging Scholar Award for contribution to international management scholarship by a junior scholar; IM Division CEIBS Best Paper Award; IM Division HKUST Award for the Best Paper in Global Strategy; IM Division GWU-CIBER Best Paper on Emerging Markets; IM Division Willamette University, Atkinson Graduate School of Management Best Paper in International Ethics, Social Responsibility, and/or Sustainability; IM Division Gustavson School of Business Award for the Best Qualitative Paper in International Business; IM Division CGIO Best Paper in International Corporate Governance; and the Douglas Nigh Award. My congratulations to the winners of these awards as well as to the winners of the IM Division Outstanding Educator Award, IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award, and IM Division Best Paper in OB / HRM / OT.

In preparation for the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Atlanta, please work with Elizabeth Rose and Anu Phene to create outstanding PDW and academic programs. Consider not only submitting your best work to the Division, but also organizing innovative professional development workshops, and coordinating insightful panels. The theme of the 2016 Annual Meeting is “At the Interface.”

Let’s work together to develop insights at and across geographical and intellectual interfaces.
