Dear Worldwide Members of the Academy,

It gives me great pleasure to present the 2021 ballot for electing three new Representatives-at-Large and a new Vice President-Elect and Program Chair-Elect to the Board of Governors. The Academy's election web site is open and ready to accept your votes from April 15 through May 17, 2021. I strongly encourage you to vote in this election.

The current slate of candidates is culled from your nominations submitted last fall in response to the Call for Nominations posted on AOM Online. The result is an impressive group of proven leaders who are strongly committed to the goals and ideals of our professional association. Please join me in thanking each of these volunteers for being willing to further serve the Academy.

On behalf of the Board of Governors, I would like to remind members of our tradition of independent nomination and election. We value the fact that elections in the Academy of Management traditionally have been free of active "politicking". It is certainly appropriate to ask fellow members of the Academy for further information about a candidate you do not know. However, active campaigning is inconsistent with our professional norms. This tradition has been repeatedly reaffirmed in member surveys.

As outlined in our bylaws, votes for both the Vice President-Elect and Program Chair-Elect as well as for the three Representatives-at-Large positions will be counted using the Hare method. In order for your preferences to be fully represented, you should rank order the candidates in each category. The election results will be available on our website in April.

Thank you for your participation.


Jacqueline A-M. Coyle-Shapiro
Past President and Chair of the AOM Nominating Committee*

*As specified in the Academy's bylaws, the Nominating Committee consists of the five executive officers of the Academy, which includes the Past President & Chair of the Nominating Committee, President, President-Elect & Coordinator of Professional Division, Vice President & Program Chair, Vice President-Elect & Program Chair-Elect.
