AMCIS 2021 Social Project

AMCIS is continuing its effort to expand its impact and leave a positive digital footprint in the communities we visit, This initiative is a Social Project that is not geared towards raising money for a good cause but focused on what we do; developing technology-based solutions for issues affecting businesses and communities in the AMCIS conference home city of Montreal for 2021. Moreover, this is not a project to be executed merely by the Organizing Committee but by AIS members and their students to be performed during the entire term; not only during the conference.

Invitation

All AIS members and their students are invited to participate in this exciting and forward looking Social Project. If you are interested, please contact Lakshmi Iyer (iyerls@appstate.edu), or Suchit Ahuja (suchit.ahuja@concordia.ca) at your earliest convenience.

Description

After some research, the AMCIS 2021 Social Project Co-Chairs have identified two potential beneficiaries of this initiative. They are:
