Dear IM Division Members,

I hope you are safe and well. As you are aware, we will have another virtual Annual Meeting this year. This year’s conference theme of “Bringing the Manager Back in Management” is very timely and appropriate as the tenor of our time suggests that seeking to help managers deal with the issues confronting them would be a valuable contribution to the world we live in.

Program Chair Bill Newburry and Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Chair Grazia Santangelo have been hard at work building the IM Division’s conference program. We are extremely grateful for their work. Grazia’s efforts have led to an IM Division PDW program which will feature select PDWs and our division’s Doctoral Student Consortium (chaired by Elizabeth Maitland), Junior Faculty Consortium (chaired by Jonathan Doh), Paper Development Workshop (chaired by Srividya Jandhyala), and “Meet-the-Editors” session (chaired by Ilya Cuypers). Bill had the huge job of putting together our division’s scholarly program which includes symposia and paper sessions, covering the vast array of topics that comprise our field of International Management. The scholarly program highlights include sessions featuring nominees for best paper awards and finalists for the D’Amore-McKim Northeastern University Best Dissertation Award. In addition to enjoying paper presentations and engaging with the other friendly IM Division members, join us for some informal discussions about leading-edge IM issues at our Thought Leadership Café with this year’s thought leaders, Sam Park and Elizabeth Rose.

I will recognize several special honorees this year – Rosalie Tung (IM Division Eminent Scholar Award), Eleanor Westney (IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award), Paul Almeida (IM Division AmorePacific Outstanding Educator Award), and Stav Fainshmidt (IM Division FIU Emerging Scholar Award) – in addition to the winners of the paper and dissertation awards...
