Besides her scholarly contributions, Anne has devoted herself to serve our community with all her heart and soul.

She served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ) from 1996 to1999, and later as an elected officer of the Academy leading to the Presidency of AOM from 2008 to 2013. During her sabbatical year at Peking University in 2000-2001, Anne saw the pressing need for high quality management knowledge and scholarship in fast-developing China. This inspired her to found the International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR) in 2002, and Management and Organization Review (MOR) in 2005. She has also done a lot in promoting the professional development of young scholars and doctoral students. For example, she co-founded the Chinese Management Scholar Research Method Workshop with Dr. Larry Farh in 1999, which aimed at equipping Chinese scholars with modern research methodology to conduct empirical research. She has served as a faculty advisor in this workshop over the years. In recognizing her immense contributions to the field, the Academy of Management awarded her its Distinguished Service Contribution Award in 2015.

Prof. Anne Tsui has now retired from the Arizona State University, after serving for over 35 years in the organization studies field.
