Dear EAM Colleagues,

Based on the member survey results, and after as much discussion and deliberation as the situation allowed, the Board of Directors has voted to postpone the EAM Meeting at the Westin Hotel in Portland, Maine previously scheduled for May 14-17th. 

At this point, we are planning to hold the conference on June 25 - 27th at the Westin, Portland, Maine but the situation is still very fluid, and the date and/or the location may change.  A lot will depend on how the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic unfolds over the coming weeks.  We will do our best to include your perspectives, suggestions and concerns in our deliberations and inform you of all decisions in a timely manner.  We appreciate your understanding and your flexibility.

The members of the Board of Directors are very aware that many of you do not know if your travel budgets will be unfrozen or restored by the end of the academic year.  We also understand that many personal, university and professional plans are in flux.  For those of you who have already registered for the conference, we are extending the date until which you can request a full refund of your registration fee to June 17th (less a $25 processing fee that just covers our credit card processing expenses).  We will also be extending the “early bird” reduced registration rate to June 17th as well.

Please feel free to email me, Elizabeth McCrea,, with any questions or suggestions you may have.


Elizabeth McCrea

EAM President

Conference Theme: Being Human in the Digital World

Program Chair: Mousumi Bhattacharya

Dolan School of Business, Fairfield University,

In the new age of the digital world, human skills are in great demand. What are these skills? How do humans interact with digitization, automation, big data, artificial intelligence and other new frontiers of technology? How do we develop these skills required in this new age? How do faculty change the way we teach to prepare our students? The Eastern Academy of Management community will get together to explore these and other management issues in research, teaching and learning.
