OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
As the new division chair for Organization and Management Theory, I want to thank each and every one of you for your long-standing support and participation in the division. Thanks especially to all our officers and volunteers, current and past, who have kept the division so active these years. We are a large and very active community of scholars. OMT has 3453 members, which makes OMT the third largest division in the Academy of Management, behind OB and BPS. OMT set a record for submissions at the last Academy of Management, and had a great scholarly program. OMT is still "the place to be"!
