David Allen Elected SMA Fellow

For release:  May 15, 2013

David Allen, a professor in the Department of Management, was elected as a fellow of the Southern Management Association (SMA). SMA is an affiliate of the Academy of Management and a sponsor of the prestigious publication, the Journal of Management.  The SMA’s primary mission is to advance the research, teaching, learning, and practice of management. Presently, the SMA membership consists of over 900 management professors, doctoral students, and executives representing more than 200 colleges, universities, and business firms in 43 states and several foreign countries.

Dr. Allen was elected as an SMA Fellow based on his outstanding research stature and service to SMA. His primary research interests include the flow of people into and out of organizations and global talent management, and his research on these topics has been published in the field’s top journals as well as a recent book. He has served SMA in several capacities, including an elected term to the Executive Board, as Chair of the Finance Committee, as an Editorial Board member for the Journal of Management, and as a regular contributor at the SMA annual conference.

The Southern Management Association Fellowship election is a highly selective process. 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.
