2001 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Le Meridien Hotel

Lisbon, Portugal


WELCOME

It is our pleasure to welcome all participants to the 2001 International Conference of the Academy of Business Administration, the eight annual international conference.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to everyone who contributed their time, energy and expertise to making this conference as well as the Academy of Business Administration such a success. Each participant’s contribution helps the Academy fulfill its mission of disseminating high quality research in the fields of business and public  administration.

Each conference owes a large debt to the program committee. The track chairs have done a terrific job of soliciting and reviewing quality work for this conference.  As usual it is a pleasure for us to spend time with old friends and hear what everyone has been up to.  At the same time, it is exciting to meet new participants and get to know them and their work.  We hope you will join us in making an effort to make our newcomers welcome and encouraging them to come back again and again as many of you have done. 

Over the years, we have tried very hard to create a warm and supportive environment in which conference participants can share their work. It is the thoughtful comments of the reviewers and the lively discussion of the research which truly make us proud of this conference.

We hope you enjoy the conference and your stay in the scenic and beautiful city of Lisbon.

Dr. David L. Moore

Conference Chair

Dr. Sam Fullerton
