Get Involved!


If your interests revolve around the world of organizations, consider joining the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) Division of the Academy of Management! OMT is a global community of scholars (almost 4000 members!) who build and test theory about organizations, their management and organizing processes, intra-organizational relations, organization-environment relations, and the role of organizations in society. We aspire to advance robust theoretical understanding of organizations, organizing, and management. 

Joining OMT is easy:

  • If you are not already an AOM member, join the Academy of Management. When joining, be sure to select Organization & Management Theory (OMT) in your Divisions and Interest Group selections.
  • If you already are a member (or your membership has lapsed) and have not yet chosen our group, you can add OMT for $11.00 now or the next time you renew your membership online.

OMT Communications Team

Created in August 2012, the OMT Communications Team is a group of 20+ volunteers who work hard to keep our membership engaged and up to date on important topics and events. We do this by writing blogs, interviewing OMT scholars, and sharing information on our social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) during conferences like AOM and EGOS.

The Communications Team is always looking for new members.  It is open to all, and is an excellent opportunity to get to know people on the OMT Executive Committee, top OMT scholars in our field, and simply become more involved in the wonderful OMT community. If you are interested in finding out more information, please email Hovig Tchalian.

OMT Membership Group (OMG)

Are you looking for a way to get more involved with OMT? Would you like to give back to your academic community? OMT is looking for your help! We are building the first ever OMT Membership Group (OmtMG or OMG for short)! As a volunteer you will do some of the following activities: greet new members at OMT Socials at AOM and EGOS (and be the keeper of the drink tickets); represent OMT at All-Academy Events and Consortia; organize and attend existing OMT social events including OMT Drinks, OMT Yoga, OMT Café, OMT Eats, OMT Runs; and develop new ideas, programs and innovations that truly make OMT the place to be!

OMG is open to all– from PHD students to Chaired Professors. Please email your interest to Emily Block (
