Dear AFAM Community:

Greetings! I hope your plans and goals are as you expect. In May, I informed you of our activities for 2019 and our preparations for the biennial conference in January 2020. Please I extend to you my profound gratitude for your membership in AFAM, You believe in the vision of AFAM for transforming Africa through Management knowledge. I also thank the executives who are sacrificing their precious time to run the organization. Together we can enable management knowledge that will be used to transform Africa’s organizations.
First, our activities in Boston were successful. Even though some of our PDWs were not well attended others were beyond our expectations. So, overall, we were satisfied with the involvement. Thank you very much to all those who patronized our activities. As usual, our social was great. We hope to improve upon that and other events. Let’s keep making progress!

Second, I want to remind you about our 5th Biennial conference will 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. We extended the early registration twice but we are now in the regular registration period. I encourage you to complete your registration so that we can finalize the logistics. We need that information to arrange (a) transportation from the airport to the hotel (b) daily pickups, (c) meals and refreshments, (d) experiential visits, (e) presentations.
Let me conclude by saying again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. We really appreciate your involvement in AFAM. May I encourage you to invite others to join AFAM, The executives and I are determined to enhance our mission of ADVANCING MANAGEMENT SCHOLARSHIP AND PRACTICE IN AFRICA.
