Registration, Attendance, and Guest Policy

In order to ensure maximum benefit to Annual Meeting attendees, we ask that all conference participants read the following Academy of Management Registration Policy. Members and non-members participating in Academy of Management activities, including AOM's Annual Meeting, are expected to adhere to the Code of Ethics.


All attendees, including individuals scheduled on the official Academy of Management Annual Meeting Program, are required to register and pay the appropriate registration fee in order to participate in any capacity at the Annual Meeting. This includes authors, editors, award recipients, coordinators, discussants, facilitators, hosts, distinguished speakers, moderators, organizers, speakers, participants, presenters, panelists, placement interviewers, secretaries, treasurers, and any division-elected or appointed volunteers.

By registering to attend the Annual Meeting, you grant AOM permission to take and use your photo, audio, and/or video in marketing and promotional pieces, written publications, videos, and the association's website for an indefinite period of time.

Registration Fee

Conference registration entitles attendees access to 1,800+ sessions (with the exception of invitation-only sessions, board meetings, and workshops requiring separate enrollment). AOM's 2022 Annual Meeting offers three experiences and ways to participate in the Annual Meeting:

  • In-person, on-site sessions in Seattle, Washington, USA from 5-9 August
  • Virtual-only sessions that include synchronous (webinar and meeting style sessions) and asynchronous (on-demand) sessions hosted on the virtual Annual Meeting platform from 4-10 August
  • Hybrid sessions comprised of a sizeable portion of select on-site sessions, live-streamed to include virtual attendance from 5-9 August

A valid AOM membership through 31 August 2022 is required to register for the Annual Meeting. The registration fee does not include membership renewal or registration for Professional Development Workshops that require separate enrollment or additional fees. Conference registration is individual and non-transferable. There are no formal meals included in the registration fee.

Registration Cancellations and Refunds

To cancel Annual Meeting registration for any reason, registrants must submit a cancellation request in writing to the Academy of Management at The registration fee is refundable until 18 July 2022 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) and is subject to an $85 Processing Fee. When registration is cancelled, any Professional Development Workshops or social events for which the attendee has registered will also be cancelled. We are unable to provide a refund for cancellation after 18 July 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) due to contractual obligations and guarantees. This also extends to any Professional Development Workshops and social events requiring separate enrollment.

Conference registration is individual and cannot be transferred to another registrant, conference, or Academy of Management service. By submitting this form, you acknowledge that you have read the above cancellation policy and understand that you will be refunded in accordance with the policy.

Guest Policy

Due to the heightened safety and screening measures and our prioritization of the health and safety of registrants in accordance with Seattle mandates and strict crowd/group requirements, guests are not permitted in conference sessions, events, or group functions and will not be issued guest badges. Guests are not permitted access to the convention center and AOM functions.

Childcare Policy

The Academy of Management strives to support its members through professional activities at the Annual Meeting. Due to the high safety and security needs, significant cost, and limited interest, the Academy of Management does not provide on-site childcare services.  If attendees bring a dependent to the Annual Meeting, the attendee is required to make on-site childcare accommodations.

For local childcare options, please visit our Seattle Travel page.

Name Badge

All conference attendees must wear official conference name badges to all Annual Meeting sessions, workshops, receptions, and events. Access to conference functions without a badge will be denied. Name badges are provided to all registered attendees. Members without an official conference badge will be asked to show proof of registration or register for the conference. Accepted forms of proof include a registration receipt or a registration confirmation email. Failure to show proof of registration will result in removal from the conference and will subject registration violators to a formal ethics complaint.
