The purpose of the AMCIS Mid-Career Consortium is to provide support to mid-career faculty through an event designed for mid-career faculty. In this meetup we will use an innovative online conferencing platform, Remo, where participants will have an opportunity to network with fellow mid-career faculty, learn from their peers, and interact with panelists.
When beginning a career in academia, the stated goal is demanding, but straightforward, “Achieve tenure and/or promotion to associate professor”. After reaching the milestone of Associate Professor, identifying a vision for the future is less straightforward. Many different paths and goals now become available (e.g., administrative roles, service to the university, service to the discipline, research focus, teaching focus) and new opportunities present themselves (e.g., editorial responsibilities). Defining a vision in this more ambiguous landscape can be exciting, yet challenging.
This year’s meetup consortium will have the theme, “Next Level – Expanding Your Career Contributions Through Mentoring”, keeping with the overall conference theme of “Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship”. The meetup will consist of two panels and opportunities for group networking and interaction.
All faculty who reached the stage of Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer, or equivalent position are encouraged to attend, even if the faculty member has participated in prior mid-career meetup consortiums. Since the primary purpose is to create interactive, networking opportunities, we encourage you to join us in this engaging meetup.
Since (virtual) seating is limited, please register in advance in order to attend this event. You can include the Mid-Career Meetup when you register to attend AMCIS 2020 as part of the virtual conference series.
