Congratulations to Roxanne Zolin

Congratulations to Roxanne Zolin on having been elected Representative-at-Large for the Entrepreneurship Division (ENT) of the Academy of Management (AoM)!

Roxanne has previously been involved in work for AoM-ENT’s Communications Committee and has also been active in organising Professional Development Workshops at the annual meeting, among other things.
