The Maui Conference represented the 10 year anniversary meeting of the Allied Academies and it turned out to be a great conference! Maui is a bit on the expensive side, so we did not have as many physical participants as we normally do, but it was quite a good turnout for Maui (with over 130 registrants). We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all who participated. It is the authors and the conference participants who make the Allied Academies successful and who support our efforts to achieve our mission.

As you know, Allied Academies is a not for profit corporation and is not sponsored by any university or organization. We are dependent upon conference registration fees, and contributions from interested and supportive groups. Our mission is to support and encourage the exchange of ideas in higher education throughout the world. To that end, we sponsor conferences and publish journals. In addition, we maintain this web site which has developed into an important communication medium for our membership and for scholars from around the world. We publish our journals simultaneously in hard copy and on the web page, and you can view conference proceedings, newsletters and academy information there as well.

  • Spring International Conference in Memphis, TN

    Our Spring 2005 International Conference in Memphis (April 14-16) is coming up and we are expecting it to be our best turnout yet. We now have our online forms up and running and registration materials are currently due by February 28. To provide you with maximum outlets for your research, the Allied Academies will hold joint meetings of all its member academies. The Internet Division will allow registrants to participate without traveling to the Conference, but we hope to see you all there!

    Summer International Internet Conference

    The Internet Conference has continued to grow in popularity and this July we will have our 7th Summer International Internet Conference. With budget shortfalls and reduced travel allowances, the Internet Conference has become a necessity for some and a luxury for others.  It is the same as a physical conference, with the exception of having to travel.  The conference will be held completely online, with the ability for participants to communicate via a message board, e-mail, instant messaging, Power Point, and video if they so choose.  

    Participants can submit their papers for award consideration, then 25% will be selected as winners and will have their works published in the appropriate Journal. There will be a conference Proceedings published on-line as well as on CD, and a conference Program published both in hard copy and on-line. This year, in addition to the bulletin board we have for posting questions and comments, we will add the live chat capability via your browser's built in Instant Messaging application. Participants can also submit Power Point presentations to be posted on our web site as a companion to their paper. The Internet conference will run for two weeks giving participants plenty of time to participate as their schedules and time zones allow (no strict schedule will be required). See our Submission Instructions page for information on submitting.

    Academies & Journal News

    We currently publish 16 different Journals (all with a 25% acceptance rate and listed in Cabell's) representing every area in the School of Business. Due to some recent health problems, we are just now getting the rest of the 2004 issues of the Journals published and mailed. We would like to apologize for the delay and reassure you that it was caused by forces beyond our control. We will be updating the online Journal pages this month with the new additions as well.
