Early-Career Faculty Consortium

AMCIS 2019 continues the tradition of hosting the Early Career Faculty Consortium.  This year’s consortium will be held on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, and on Thursday, August 15, 2019 from 8:00 am to 11:30 am.

The consortium draws together faculty in their first four years of academic service along with faculty mentors from a variety of schools throughout the Americas region for activities and discussion aimed to offer all participants insights into their academic career that can help them be valuable, marketable, and successful in their career from their own perspective, and that of their university and the academy.

The topics and exercises will be designed to promote interaction among junior faculty, sharing what you have learned and your questions from your early experiences as a faculty member.  Participants will also receive feedback from the experienced faculty leaders who will share their key lessons learned from their own careers.  Experiences from respected senior and mid-level faculty members will help shape, focus, and inform discussions of critical issues, while quality interaction among junior faculty remains a prime purpose of the consortium.

Registration Information

To allow for maximum participation among the participants, there is a limit to the number of participants.  If you would like to attend, simply select this workshop when you register for AMCIS 2019 (once registration is online).
