Revisit: Summer AMA 2019


Recently granted tenure? Dinner, Chicago, 9 Aug 2019

Were you granted tenure this year?

Congratulations on a distinctive achievement!

During Summer AMA in Chicago, a dinner for recently tenured marketing faculty will be held on Friday, August 9th at 7:15pm at Volare restaurant (201 E Grand Avenue, RSVP to the email below).

The host of this dinner is Associate Professor Michelle Steward of Wake Forest University.

Sports aficionados suggest that a team is most vulnerable after the team scores. Resting after a victory, or post-goal reset, can actually reduce acceleration toward the next big goal.

In the weeks after I was granted tenure in 2010, a dear friend asked me perhaps the single most important question, “What’s next?”

This question caused me to think carefully about my post-tenure pursuits. Up to that time, my focus had been on a singular goal of becoming a tenured marketing professor. What would be next?

What’s next for you?

Efforts toward achieving the next goal are enhanced when we learn something about ourselves (see Drèze and Nunes April 2011 JMR for more).

This dinner for recently tenured marketing professors offers an opportunity to enhance the acceleration of the pursuit of your next career goal by being among others in our community.

Feel free to share this announcement with colleagues who were recently granted tenure.

To RSVP, please email Dr. Michelle Steward at Wake Forest University, Please also email with any questions.
