A Message from the SBAA Executive Committee

Dear SBAA Colleagues,

As we move into the next phase of COVID-19, we wanted to share our plans for SBAA for this year.

Sharon Oswald, our VP, Programs, has planned an informative virtual Summer Workshop for July. Click on the link to the right of this letter to learn more about the program. The topics are timely for all of us, ranging from Disruption in Management Education to Student Success. Caryn Beck Dudley, President AACSB and Geoff Perry, Chief Officer of Asia Pacific and co-chair of Business Accreditation Task Force will provide information to us about the roll-out of the new standards as well.

The fall Annual Meeting will be held on November 7-9 at the Don CeSar Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida. We know that, like us, you will be ready by then to spend some quality, in-person time with your SBAA colleagues. Watch for more information about the program for the Annual Meeting that we will share in late summer.

If you have not yet joined SBAA to be part of this outstanding group of leaders in business education, we invite you to do so today. Feel free to reach out to any of us on the Executive Team if you have questions, or if we can assist you in any way.
