Attention Academic and Corporate Colleagues,

This year’s Call for Submissions and Participation for the 2008 AoM/IAoM annual conference is located at http://www.aom-iaom.org/ on the introductory “splash page” listing the AoM/IAoM Website link. It calls for academics, and corporate managers in a variety of conference related activities and describes the different types of submissions the Association is seeking this year (both academic and fact-based). In addition, it provides information about the M.E.L.T. paradigm, which represents the organizing framework, along with membership information, the AoM/IAoM publication portfolio, individual leadership, and support/sponsorship opportunities.

AoM/IAoM welcomes visitors to its redesigned website. Its opening splash page Featured Articles section is prepared to receive web submissions from academics (faculty, academic officers, and administrators), corporate officers, human resource managers, and practitioners.

We specifically invite articles, which address, but are not limited to, contemporary global Management,Education, Leadership and Technology (M.E.L.T.) advances, challenges, and innovative practices within multiple cultural environs.

The redesigned AoM/IAoM website also includes a What’s New section intended for posting short reports on developments related to the AoM/IAoM M.E.L.T. paradigm and its four domains categories. These headline reports should be around a 25 words or less submissions with a linkto the full report for full details.

We invite you to submit these featured articles and reports by email to
aomgt@inter-source.org. at any time.

In addition, the newly designed website also features an Interactive Text Blogger for quick open loop, real-life discussions or notices. Here you will reach a global population having like interests in management, education, leadership and technology and related areas of concern. There is also a Speakers link for those who are available as speakers at the AoM/IAoM conferences and other events sponsored by the Association.

Finally, the Development Plans link introduces website visitors to several proposed collaborate efforts between the Association, academia, industry, small business organizations and independent entrepreneurs designed to enhance the professional developments of individuals and the growth and effectiveness of organizations.

We believe these extended features and services are of interest to visitors of the AoM/IAoM website. The intention is to enhance a dialog openness and networking capabilities between AoM/IAoM site visitors, members of the Association, participants of past and future conferences and to develop an interactive discourse among academics, corporate officers, human resource managers, independent practitioners and entrepreneurs, in short, leaders who are concerned with the current state-of-the-art in management, education, leadership and technology.
