SMA Fellows

The Fellowship traces its origin to 1989, when SMA President James G. Hunt asked W. Jack Duncan to Chair a committee composed of Arthur G. Bedeian and Keith Davis to investigate creating a Fellows Group within the Southern Management Association. In November, 1993, upon the Committee's recommendation, the SMA Board of Directors formally approved the formation of a Fellows Group. A set of Founding Fellows, all Fellows of the Academy of Management, who had served as either President of the Academy or the Southern Management Association, held an inaugural meeting in November 1994. The Fellowship has held an annual dinner each November since. The Founding Fellows, charged with the responsibility of organizing the Fellowship, were Arthur G. Bedeian, Louisiana State University, W. Jack Duncan, University of Alabama at Birmingham, William M. Fox, University of Florida, Robert M. Fulmer, College of William and Mary, James G. Hunt, Texas Tech University, Leon C. Megginson, Mobile College, Dennis F. Ray, Mississippi State University, Max S.Wortman, Iowa State University, and Daniel A. Wren, University of Oklahoma.
Election to the Fellowship is based on the following criteria:

  1. Scholarly achievements while an SMA member; those made before becoming an SMA member receive secondary consideration.
  2. Significant SMA service, including offices held, committee involvement, editorial responsibilities, and program participation. Whereas service is an important consideration, it alone is insufficient for being elected a Fellow.
  3. Minimum of five years' SMA membership and participation.

Candidates for membership must be nominated by an active SMA Fellow, and seconded by two active Fellows. Neither nominators nor seconders may be members of the faculty where a candidate received a terminal degree or currently holds an appointment. Affirmation of 60 percent of the voting Fellows is required for election.
A Dean of the Fellows, elected by the Fellowship, serves for a three-year period. An Associate Dean is appointed by the Dean for a coterminous period and is responsible for assisting the Dean in administering the Fellowship. An Historian, also appointed by the Dean, is responsible for preserving and documenting the Fellowship's heritage. Officers:
