Associate editor’s strategic direction meeting – April 4th & 5th, 2014

*Meeting is only for Associate Editors*

To Associate Editors,

All serving associate editors of Journal of Operations Management are invited for the first AE board meeting in Tempe on April 4th and 5th (Friday and Saturday) of 2014. The location is Tempe, Arizona, at Arizona State University. You will fly into Phoenix Airport and Tempe is short 15 minute ride from the airport.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the strategic directions of the Journal as the “people’s journal” that promotes egalitarianism and meritocracy. Dan and Tom will also share some of the recent initiatives designed to expand the Journal’s on-line presence and will ask for your feedback—we are working toward creating an on-line JOM community. We will also brainstorm for ways to be more developmental in our reviews back to the authors.

You will need to pay your way here for both travel and lodging. But once you arrive, Tom promises a good dinner at his house and, the mother-nature cooperating, a great sunset. Please RSVP to Jamie at jom@asu.edu by January 31, 2014. Thank you.

Happy Holidays,

Dan and Tom
Co-EIC’s, JOM
