The Outreach and Integration Committee (OIC) works on ways to improve outreach to and integration of MOC members, connecting members from different locations, membership types, methodological orientations, and theoretical domains. Each year, members of the OIC committee organize a number of international conferences that assemble researchers from all over the world. The concept beyond these conferences is simple and compelling. Meetings are hold in a casual, low key, yet energizing, research-focused, and developmentally oriented atmosphere that allows to build a stronger worldwide community of MOC scholars.

Current and past Rep-at-Large are: Laura Illia, IE University  (ES), 2014-2017; Davide Ravasi, Cass Business School, City University London (UK), 2011-2014; Sally Maitlis, Said Business School, University of Oxford (UK), 2018-20011; Elizabeth George, HKUST Business School, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HK), 2005-2008.
