Led group discussion in Orlando on four papers for Social Issues in Management division.  

Kansas City, Mo. — October 21, 2013 — Chase Cookson, chair of Grantham University’s Mark Skousen School of Business, served as session chair for the Academy of Management’s (AOM) Social Issues in Management (SIM) division. His particular area of expertise was used in the conference track, “Assessing Societal Outcomes.”

“Considering I have only been a member of AOM for two years,” Cookson said, “I was truly honored to receive the chance to serve as a session chair. Facilitating the presentation of these four papers and leading the discussion with the audience afterward in Orlando was a wonderful experience as an educator.”

Cookson first joined AOM in 2011, when he became involved in the SIM and Organizations and the Natural Environment divisions. As an active member in both divisions, he served as a peer reviewer for the 2012 and 2013 annual conferences. Based on his work, he was appointed to serve as an associate editor, and then selected from a pool of associate editors to serve as the session chair in 2013.
