Retail & Pricing SIG


This SIG consists of a group of faculty and Ph.D. students interested in examining marketing issues in retailing and pricing. We seek as goals to communicate and house information of relevance to the field, and to further the field of retailing research and pricing research, as well as teaching in both these areas.  Further, we strive to strengthen the community of scholars involved in the field as well as by attracting bright new scholars to it.

Membership
Retail and Pricing SIGs annual budget is determined by the size of our membership, so we need your help if we are to continue to support the services marketing community. There are two ways to join our SIG. (1) When you join the AMA, you are allowed to join one special interest group for free. If you are interested in supporting the Retail & Pricing SIG, then please check that box under the Special Interest Groups section of the AMA application. (2) If you are already a member of AMA, then you need to renew your application each year. To support the Retail & Pricing SIG, please select it as your SIG on the renewal application.  You may choose to join several special interest groups for a nominal fee of every group after one.  Please consider adding the Retail & Pricing SIG to your associations.

Events
We have special sessions and receptions at both the Summer and Winter AMA Educators’ Conferences.  These events are great for staying current on retail and pricing research as well as networking with colleagues.  We also host a Triennial conference with ACRA that focuses specifically on current trends in retail and pricing, as well as retail pedagogy.

Awards
At the Summer AMA Educators’ Conference, we annually celebrate and recognize an individual for his/her Lifetime Achievement. In 2012 we introduced the first Lifetime Achievement Award in Pricing to acknowledge outstanding contributions in the field of pricing over the past 20 years.  The first recipient for this award was Dhruv Grewal (Ph.D. Virginia Tech), the Toyota Chair in Commerce and Electronic Business and a Professor of Marketing at Babson College.

The Retail and Pricing SIG will begin alternating Lifestyle Achievement Awards for research in Retail and Pricing.  Lifetime Achievement Awards for scholarly bodies of work in Retail will be awarded in odd years and Lifetime Achievement Awards for scholarly bodies of work in Pricing will be awarded in even years.
