Request for Proposals – AIB Special Interest Conferences
In addition to the annual international conference held in the summer, the Academy of International Business is planning 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 conferences.
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:
members of the organizing committee
call for papers
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); the submission deadline to be considered at the next board meeting is January 15, 2016.
