Dear colleagues and friends,
As I am taking over EURAM’s presidency, let me congratulate Sibel Yamak for her great leadership. Thanks to her hard work and efforts with the members of the Executive Committee, the house is in order and on the move. EURAM 2018 Annual Conference was a great success! We had record number of participants for both the regular conference programme and doctoral colloquium! We are all thankful to our Local Organising Committee, Conference Programme Committee, Doctoral Colloquium Chairs, our reviewers and all our SIGs who did a superb job in dealing with over 2000 submissions.
I intend to work in continuity with what Sibel Yamak and her team has done.
Let me summarise what I see as key points of a strategy for EURAM, starting by expressing our mission.
The European Academy of Management aims at developing Management Research and Education to improve knowledge and practice about how to lead organised collective action. EURAM was founded to build a community of engaged management scholars valuing the European culture and research traditions as many European (and non-European) management academics were looking for an academy where they would feel more at home than in other existing management learned societies.
To serve its purpose and its various stakeholders, it may be worth expressing our strategic intents at EURAM.
