We are approaching the end of an intense semester. We will finally have time to relax and to spend some time with our beloved ones.
With this newsletter, I would like to remind you of some important deadlines and underline key important news concerning our society.
The next Annual Conference will be organized by the University of Bath and its School of Management (25-28 June 2024). The deadline to submit your paper to the 2024 EURAM Annual Conference is the 11th of January 2024. As the number of tracks and symposia proposed for the Conference reached the highest number ever, there are expectations that the Conference will be a great success.
The deadline for PhDs applying for the Doctoral Colloquium (24-25 June 2024) is the 18th of January. As usual, this event represents a great opportunity for junior colleagues to meet their peers from various countries, and to develop skills and competencies to boost their professional career.
In 2024, EURAM will organize the 15th edition of the EECC in Barcelona (11-13th of March 2024). The program has been largely enriched by Joanna Szulc with the ultimate goal to increase the benefits for all attendees. I am sure this event will help early career scholars to build a richer professional network, to develop more sophisticated skills, and to better navigate their academic career.
Next year, we will be launching elections for the next EURAM Chairperson, the Dean of the Fellows College, the SIG and Country Representatives on the board, and some Country Representatives to join the Country Representatives Council. The Board has recently developed bylaws and modified those to harmonize the terms and the elections modalities. All those elected officers’ positions will be run in the same way for more coherence and inclusion; self-nominations will be solicited. We hope you will be keen on volunteering for a position and also on voting when the time comes.
Finally, I want to underline that we are launching a new service (tentatively called ‘community connect’) that will allow you to send monthly updates (e.g., about the call for special issues, the call for book chapters or the opening of new positions) to all (or some) SIGs’ members. This new service will enrich EURAM communication tools that currently include the annual report, the quarterly newsletters, and the posts on social media (whose impact is growing significantly). New initiatives will be disclosed soon.
That being said, I hope to meet you all next year at the EURAM Annual Conference and Doctoral Colloquium that will be held in Bath.
In the meantime, I am happy to wish you a relaxing holiday season and a fantastic new year!
