In the year 2013-2014

We injected new leadership and collaborated with a growing number of divisions and committees while maintaining connections and collaborations with our past leadership by continuing to inform and work with immediate past chairs, Tyrone Pitsis and Elena Antonacopoulou. We improved our Awards process, with new leadership and a redesigned international sub-committee and practices; refined the structure of our PDWs; and continued to create opportunities for interactions and engagement with the greater AOM community at before, during, and after the conference. In addition, we create task force directors as a governance structure to allow PTC committee members to take self-initiatives to dream, develop, and executive a number of strategic initiatives under the rubric of various task forces.

Proposal to modify the wording of the PTC Charge
In addition, we propose modifying the wording of the PTC Charge. We recommend these changes in order to make explicit the importance of collaboration across the AOM between the PTC and other AOM groups

•  Expose the Academy to practice-oriented professional development opportunities.
•  Raise the visibility of management practice as an important professional focus within the Academy.
•  Coordinate support for the "scholarship of application" activities of Academy members.
•  Liaison with other Academy divisions and committees to use dialogue and collaboration to enhance rigor and relevance of practice-related teaching and research.
•  Assist the Membership Committee and Diversity & Inclusion Theme Committee in their charge to develop the presence, impact, and inclusion of practitioners and insure their hospitality and nourishment in the academy.
