A Message From the President

Bob Albert, Ph.D.

As I look back at the long list of outstanding leaders who have preceded me as president of SBAA, I find myself truly humbled and honored to be serving in this role for 2018.  As a result of the good work of those past leaders, the dedication of our current board members, and the support of our membership at large, SBAA continues on very solid footing.  Membership is strong.  Programs are engaging.  And networking opportunities abound – from golf and other group outings to Sunday dinners and session breaks.

SBAA Summer Workshops and Annual Meetings attract a diverse array of business school leaders from nearly 150 member schools across the Southern U.S. and beyond.  This mix of participants, and the program sessions they deliver, provide a unique set of engagement and learning opportunities.  Program sessions include a focus on current best practices at our members’ schools, keynote speakers providing insights into corporate and non-profit business trends, and the most up-to-date AACSB accreditation issues.

As you begin planning your calendar for 2018, please save July 15-17 for our Summer Workshop in Nashville, Tennessee and November 11-13 for our Annual Meeting in Charleston, South Carolina.  Details on both of these events will be posted on our website as program plans are finalized.  Should you be interested in supporting the SBAA, please review the opportunities by clicking on the Sponsorship link at the top of this page and/or contact me directly. Cheers!
