On behalf of the entire Executive Board, welcome to the Technology & Innovation Management (TIM) Division! We are a friendly, interactive division 33 years strong composed of over 2,700 members, of which 55% are international and 45% are U.S.-based members. Our division is composed of a wide range of members from different backgrounds, including 67.44% academic members, 24.36% student members, 7.12% executive members, and 1.08% emeritus members. Our members are most likely to also be members of Business Policy and Strategy, Entrepreneurship, and/or the Organization and Management Theory Divisions. Our primary sponsor is the Kauffman Foundation. Our business meeting and social are highly attended, and many say we have the best social at the Academy of Management meeting! We have requested a bigger room for next year!
We look forward to seeing you at the Vancouver, British Columbia, meeting to be held August 7-11, 2015. The theme for next year’s conference is Governance, which has unlimited possibilities as a topic for the TIM Division. Be thinking now of clever titles for your paper or workshop. Feel free to contact me or any of the executive board at any time with your ideas and suggestions. Have a great year!
Dianne H.B. Welsh
