Dear IACMR Members:

Your are cordially invited to the Business Meeting and Reception of the International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR) at the 2012 Academy of Management meeting in Boston! We will review our activities and achievements in the past year, listen to a panel discussion on “Qualitative Methods and Creative Research”, and catch up with old friends with delicious food!

As part of the business meeting, we will feature a panel on the topic of qualitative methods and creative research, covering issues such as the current status of knowledge and future research in this area. The panel is composed of world renowned, authoritative scholars, who use creative qualitative research methods to advance management theory and research:

•    Amy Edmondson, Harvard Business School
•    Melissa Graebner, University of Texas at Austin
•    Andy Van de Ven, University of Minnesota

This year, IACMR and Guanghua School of Management at Peking University will host a joint reception at the Academy of Management Meeting, which will offer Academy members an opportunity to learn about the association and Guanghua School of Management, and to meet others who are also interested in management research in the cross-cultural context–especially that of China. The dean of Guanghua School of Management— Professor Hongbing Cai, will give a presentation about the school at the beginning of the Research Panel on Qualitative Research Methods (research panel will be held before the joint reception) and give opening remarks at the reception.
