The 2010 OMT Business Meeting is on Monday August 9, 6:30-7:30pm, at Le Palais Des Congres, 524B. I hope you all will join us there to congratulate the winners of the OMT awards, including the winner of our new award for the Best Published Paper. As always, the Business Meeting will be followed by the OMT Social Hour!

New Award! Best Published Paper in Organization and Management Theory

For the first time, OMT will honor the Best Published Paper in Organization and Management Theory in the past year. I would like to thank Don Palmer, Professor of Management at UC Davis and former editor of the Administrative Science Quarterly, for chairing the Best Published Paper Committee of prominent OMT scholars, who have read last year's OMT related papers and selected a winner.

Winner: Katherine C. Kellogg, "Operating Room: Relational Spaces and Microinstitutional Change in Surgery," American Journal of Sociology 115: 657-711

The four runner-up papers will be announced at the Business Meeting.

I would like to thank the Research Committee, chaired by Joe Labianca, for choosing the conference submission awards. We are also grateful to Organization Studies for sponsoring the Best Paper Award, and to Sage Publications for sponsoring the Best Symposium Award.
