OSU professor Mark Gavin elected to serve on prestigious academic board
Mark Gavin, associate professor of management and Carson professor of business administration, was recently elected to serve as one of nine representatives-at-large for the Academy of Management’s Board of Governors. Gavin will begin serving his three-year term in August, following the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in San Antonio, Texas.
The Academy of Management is a leading professional association for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations. It is the oldest and largest scholarly management association in the world, with 18,942 members from 110 nations. The academy’s Board of Governors is charged with keeping the society’s mission, creating policy, providing resources and support for members, linking the academy’s members with important constituencies, planning for the future of the organization, and carrying out the legal, ethical and fiduciary responsibilities of the association.
To be elected to the Board of Governors, one must be nominated by a fellow academy member then screened through the nomination committee. In the spring, the new board members are elected by the organization. They are chosen for their potential leadership and their activity in the divisions and affiliates of the academy.
