I hope you and your dear ones are navigating safely through these disrupted times!
AOM has announced recently that the Annual Conference 2021 will be held virtually again. Of course, we were hoping to be able to meet you in person again next year, but we appreciate that the decision was taken early. This gives us all the opportunity to adequately plan the event building on our rich experiences. We will keep you updated when we hear more from AoM.
Forrest Briscoe, our PDW Chair, and Eva Boxenbaum, the 2021 Program Chair, are looking forward to receiving your submissions! Please make sure to help also by signing up as reviewer – OMT needs you more than ever!
In addition to the preparations for the 2021 Conference and following up on the excellent feedback we received from participants, the OMT Executive Board has started to revive the virtual events we started in the last spring. We will again be hosting the OMT MeetUps for which PhD students can sign up to connect in a one-on-one call with OMT scholars to talk about research, scholarship, teaching, career, life, etc. Stay tuned for more information!
We will also continue our long tradition of off-program OMT Cafés with a new format – OMTea. OMTeas are thematic virtual meetings that take place outside the conference period. If you are interested in hosting one of them or can volunteer in any other capacity, please contact our OMG Membership Chair Emily Block and/or our Digital Strategy Officer Mélodie Cartel.
