WELCOME

It is our pleasure to welcome all participants to the 2002 International Conference of the Academy of Business Administration.

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

Each conference owes a large debt to the program committee. The track chairs have done a wonderful 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 discussions of this work that truly make us proud of this conference.

We hope you enjoy the conference and your stay in the beautiful and historic city of Warsaw. Given our location, after the conference is over we have no doubt that we will all harbor warm memories of Warsaw for some time to come.
