Welcome from the President
It is an honor and privilege to serve as the 2014 president of the Southern Business Administration Association (SBAA). On behalf of the membership and the members of the Board, I welcome you.
For over fifty years, the SBAA has been in the forefront of advancing management education through its outstanding programs that focus on issues of relevance to business educators. SBAA meetings have always been a source of innovative ideas, solutions for common problems facing administrators of business programs, and great networking opportunities. Although SBAA is the regional association of collegiate business programs offered by colleges and universities in the southern US, we welcome all leaders of business programs to become members of the SBAA.
Plans this year include outstanding and relevant programs and we hope that you participate in these programs. The summer workshop will be held in Clearwater, FL Sunday July 13 through Tuesday July 15, 2014 at the Hilton Clearwater Beach. The workshop is designed as a forum where leaders of business programs at all levels can exchange ideas and find solutions for the issues facing them as they lead their schools and departments. Our annual meeting is scheduled for November 9-11, 2014 at JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead in Atlanta, GA. The meeting will address issues of importance to higher education in business to help deans effectively carry out their responsibilities.
As we have always done in previous years, each of our two meetings includes a session on AACSB updates. This provides a great opportunity to learn how peer institutions are implementing the new standards It is hoped that you will be able to attend our meetings and to be a participant in the great opportunities for learning, exchanging ideas, and networking.
