Dear colleagues, We are writing to personally invite you to submit a paper, symposium, and/or a Professional Development Institute (PDI) proposal for consideration as part of the Southern Management Association's 2019 Annual Meeting. This year's meeting will take place in Norfolk, Virginia - billed as "the heart of the Virginia Waterfront: a vibrant port city," Norfolk boasts the northern end of the Intracoastal Waterway and sits approximately 25 minutes (19 miles) from the Virginia Beach oceanfront. The meeting will be held October 8 -12th, at the Hilton Norfolk The Main, an art and culinary destination in itself. Further, our hotel sits within a short walk of The USS Wisconsin, brew pubs, waterfront restaurants and unique cultural and historic local venues. Explore why Norfolk was named America's favorite city in 2018 and Top 50 places to travel in 2017 here: (https://www.visitnorfolk.com/) The exchange of scholarly and practical knowledge, innovative professional development opportunities, and fun fellowship and networking promise to make SMA 2019 one of the best to date!
How Can You Be Involved? We need you to submit your manuscripts, symposia, and PDI. We also need you to volunteer to review. The quality of our program is directly dependent on your active engagement! The deadline for submissions is April 5th, 2019. We've made several minor changes to the submission process and have added additional details about the Innovative Teaching and PDI tracks. So please review the 2019 SMA Call for Papers at:
