AMA Fellows 2016
Nominations for the 2016 American Marketing Association Fellows; Deadline 1 Oct 2015
2016 AMA Fellows | Call for Nominations: Deadline 1 October 2015
Nominations for the 2016 American Marketing Association (AMA) Fellows are requested. The distinction of “AMA Fellow” is given to up to three people per year who have made significant contributions to the research, theory and practice of marketing, and/or to the service and activities of the AMA over a prolonged period of time. The AMA Fellows designation is intended to not only recognize marketing academics’ achievements, but also provide regular opportunities for fellowship, discussion, and collaboration. The 2016 cohort will be honored at Winter AMA 2016 in Las Vegas, NV.
Three criteria are considered when evaluating nominees:
- Research Contributions
Contributions to marketing scholarship are the most important criterion considered in the evaluation process. A nominee’s research should have had a major impact on marketing thought, theory, education, practice or other research. AMA expects that AMA Fellows’ research contributions reflect the diversity in scholarship in marketing.
- General Creativity/Innovativeness
Contributions including creativity and innovativeness may take a variety of forms. For example, an individual receiving this honor may have been the initiator of new marketing concepts, may have established new approaches to the application of marketing, may have developed new marketing theories, or may have developed new ways to analyze or utilize data.
- Service and participation within AMA
Nominees must be current and long standing (minimum of five years of membership, consecutive years are not necessary) members of the AMA. A history of active contributions to and participation within AMA will also be considered during the evaluation process. These contributions can include, but are not be limited to: AMA journal editors, AMA editorial review board membership, AMA conference or track chairs, AMA SIG leadership, or AMA Academic Council or Board of Directors membership.
Such contributions should take a variety of forms and should not be limited to a single professional achievement such as research or administration. It is intended that the candidates be living and it is expected that candidates hold a position at a degree-granting academic institution.
Nominations are invited from individuals and marketing departments. The nominations should be submitted in electronic form and should include:
- A letter (not to exceed four pages) summarizing the nominee’s research contributions, creative/innovative accomplishments and AMA service/participation.
- A current curriculum vita for the nominee.
The AMA Fellows Committee will select the 2016 cohort from the nominations received. Electronic copies of submission materials should be sent by October 1, 2015 to the chair of the AMA Fellows selection committee:
Michael K. Brady
The Carl DeSantis Professor of Business Admin
Florida State University
It is committee policy to evaluate a nominee up to three times – the year initially nominated and, if necessary, the following two years. Thus, individuals nominated but not selected for 2016 would also be considered in 2017 and 2018. Visit ama.org/ama-fellows for additional information.
