Letter from Rajiv Nag, SAP IG Program Chair 2018
Heartiest greetings for the New Year. I hope that you and your dear ones have a peaceful, productive, and prosperous 2018.
This is a “special” year for the the Strategizing Activities and Practices Interest group, as we move towards a possible division status. Therefore the forthcoming AOM conference in Chicago is a crucial juncture for all of us as a community.
I am reaching out to you because you had most graciously signed-up and helped out with the paper and symposia review process for the AOM meeting held in Atlanta 2017. Last year we had a total of 132 individual scholars who had signed up as reviewers. The number of reviewers signed up for 2018 stands at 66 presently. I am therefore requesting you to consider helping out our interest group once again (if you haven’t already signed up).
Your renewed participation will be of critical importance to our collective efforts towards a much needed and long overdue divisionship. I am hoping that with your help we can not only meet last year’s attainment of 132 reviewers but perhaps exceed it for this year given a strong possibility that we will attract even more paper and symposia submissions for 2018.
Do rest assured that it will be my solemn commitment to ensure that I do not overload any reviewer with excessive review requests -given that we already have a lot of other tasks to pursue. That said, the more reviewers we have, the more we can share the workload.
