    Apologies for Cross-Posting

    Dear Colleagues,

    The Southern Management Association (SMA) welcomes you to submit a paper or Professional Development Institute (PDI) proposal for consideration in this year's annual program. The 2023 SMA Annual Meeting will take place October 25-28 at the TradeWinds Island Grand Beach Resort, St. Pete Beach, FL.

    In addition to our academic research program, we will again offer world-class doctoral and professional consortia. We are also offering new session formats this year, and you can indicate the session formats that best meet your needs. Recognizing the needs of our colleagues with dependents, SMA is proud to roll out a new onsite childcare program. Finally, we have partnered with the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) to offer a one-day methods short course after the conference. Combined with our many networking events, our goal is that this meeting will be a value-added experience for all who attend.

    There are many ways to get involved:

    1. Submit: The academic research program is the heart of our annual meeting, but we need your manuscripts and PDI proposals. The deadline for submissions is April 24, 2023 at 11:59 PM EST. To submit manuscripts, use the following link:


    2. Review: Sign up to review for the annual meeting. We will limit you to three manuscripts per track. Please note that submission to the program includes an expectation that you and your coauthors will review. We also recognize "best reviewers" in each track for your efforts.

    3. Volunteer: We have numerous volunteer opportunities available. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jaime Williams (jaimewilliams@tntech.edu), if you're interested in plugging in and supporting this year's annual meeting.

    4. Attend: Block out your calendars now to participate in this year's annual meeting. Whether you are a veteran or new attendee, this is going to be a memorable and fun meeting.
