Request for Proposals - AIB Special Interest Conferences

In addition to the annual international conference held in the summer, the
Academy of International Business is launching the introduction of smaller,
regionally based meetings addressing specific themes, geographic areas or
industries. These special conferences are designed to attract new members
and to provide additional opportunities for members to participate in AIB

Ideally these special conferences should be designed to provide
opportunities for new AIB members and junior scholars to interact with
experienced AIB members as well as senior scholars. The organizers of a
special conference should be a group of committed AIB members. The
organizing committee should include oversight by some members of the AIB
leadership such as senior scholars who are current or past AIB Board members
or AIB Fellows. Conferences should attract a minimum of 150 attendees. 

Proposals should be addressed to the AIB President and submitted to the
Secretariat at [log in to unmask] . At a minimum, the proposal should include:

a.	members of the organizing committee
b.	conference theme
c.	call for papers
d.	location
e.	a timeline
f.	program highlights 
g.	preliminary budget and potential sponsorships

Each submitted proposal will be evaluated at the next AIB Board Meeting.
Board Meetings are held twice a year (typically end of January and end of
June). Please submit proposals at least two weeks before the next board
meeting to allow Board Members sufficient time to examine the proposals.
Please contact the Secretariat at [log in to unmask] for the exact deadline
before the next Board Meeting.
