Registration, Attendance, and Guest Policy

In order to ensure maximum benefit to Annual Meeting attendees, we ask that all conference participants read the following Academy of Management Registration Policy. Members and non-members participating in Academy of Management activities, including the Annual Meeting, are expected to adhere to AOM's Code of Ethics.

Registration Information

An active AOM membership is required to attend the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting registration fee does not include membership renewal or registration for Professional Development Workshops that require separate enrollment or additional fees. Conference registration is individual and non-transferable. There are no formal meals included in the registration fee.

AOM accepts credit card payment in the form of American Express, Mastercard, and Visa through the online registration system only. In order to follow the PCI compliance guidelines, AOM does not accept credit card payment via e-mail or e-mail attachments. AOM does not accept or accommodate purchase orders or wire transfers.

Registration Cancellations and Refunds

To cancel an Annual Meeting registration for any reason, the registrant must submit a cancellation request in writing to the Academy of Management at The registration fee was refundable until 18 July 2023 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) and was subject to an $85 processing fee. When registration is cancelled, any Professional Development Workshops or social events for which the attendee has registered will also be cancelled. We are unable to provide a refund for cancellation after 18 July 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) due to contractual obligations and guarantees. This also extends to any Professional Development Workshops and social events requiring separate enrollment. All eligible refunds will be issued in the original form of payment.

If the payment was made by check, a refund check will be issued to the original account associated with the check payment. Refunds are non-transferrable and cannot be applied to any future service, conference, or event. Refunds will be processed within 4 weeks of receipt.  



All attendees, including individuals scheduled on the official Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting Program, are required to have an active AOM membership through 31 August and pay the appropriate registration fee to participate in any capacity at the Annual Meeting. This includes authors, editors, award recipients, coordinators, discussants, facilitators, hosts, distinguished speakers, moderators, organizers, speakers, participants, presenters, panelists, job interviewers, secretaries, treasurers, and any division-elected or appointed volunteers. 

By registering to attend the Annual Meeting you grant permission to AOM to take and use your photo, audio, and/or video in marketing and promotional pieces, written publications, videos, and the association's website for an indefinite period.


Name Badge

All attendees must wear official conference name badges to all Annual Meeting sessions, workshops, receptions, and events. Access to conference functions will not be permitted without a badge. Name badges are provided to all registered attendees. Members without an official conference badge will be asked to show proof of registration or to register for the conference. Accepted forms of proof include a registration receipt or a registration confirmation email. Failure to show proof of registration will result in removal from the conference and will subject registration violators to a formal ethics complaint. To facilitate interaction between participating exhibitors and attendees, AOM prints a bar code with each nametag which exhibitors can scan to retain that attendee's contact information, like what is found on a business card: name, postal address, email address, and phone number. This is an entirely voluntary exchange of information. Members who do not want their information given to an exhibitor in this way should not present their code for scanning. Exhibitors will not be able to access attendee data without their consent.
