DocSIG 2019 Summer AMA Conference

 

AMA DocSIG Welcomes You to the Upcoming 2019 Summer AMA Conference!

Dear AMA DocSIG Members,

AMA DocSIG hopes that you are having a fantastic summer! The Summer AMA Conference is just a month away, and this year AMA DocSIG will host or co-sponsor SIX (6) events that you should not miss! Each event will provide you with unique opportunities to network with faculty and fellow AMA DocSIG members. You will also have the opportunity to get feedback on projects, learn new research ideas, and obtain valuable information about job market campus visits!

Event 1: Meet the Editors at The PhD Project MDSA Conference

Friday August 9th, 2019 – 10:30am – 12:30pm. Location: InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. 505 North Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL 60611.

Our friends from The PhD Project have invited us to join their special “Meet the Editors” session. PhD students rely heavily on building strong and positive relationships both internally (classmates, advisers, etc.) and externally (industry leaders, sources of data, faculty at other institutions, etc.). This session will feature many prominent faculty members who have successfully built these relationships. In addition, the editors from all of the top marketing journals will be present: Christine Moorman (JM), John Hulland (JAMS), Rajdeep Grewal (JMR), Angela Lee (JACR), Jerome Williams (JPPM), and Linda Price (JCR). Seating is unlimited and attendance is encouraged.
