Dear AFAM Members,


I wish you the very best as the year ends. May you enjoy the holidays! As in May and October, I thank you very much for your membership in AFAM. Our membership shows our belief in the transformation of Africa through Management knowledge. I ask that you join me in thanking the executives who are sacrificing their precious time to run the organization.

We are about three weeks away from the 5th Biennial conference to be held at Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos, Nigeria from January 8-11, 2020. The conference theme is Globalization, Pan Africanism, and the African Business Climate. A draft preliminary program is on our website. I apologize for the delay in getting the completed program to you earlier than now. It is because of coordination challenges with our host. Nonetheless, I believe your will find the conference very meaningful and enjoyable. We have exciting activities including symposia, caucus, professional development workshops, and experiential trips. As you prepare to join us in Lagos, Nigeria, for the conference, I suggest you review the travel information (included in this newsletter) about hotel, transport, logistics, and general comport.

I conclude by saying again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your membership and involvement in the 5th Biennial Conference in Lagos. We really cherish involvement in AFAM. May I encourage you to invite others to join AFAM. The executives and I are determined to fulfill our mission of ADVANCING MANAGEMENT SCHOLARSHIP AND PRACTICE IN AFRICA.
