We are about three weeks away from the 5th Biennial conference to be held at Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos, Nigeria from January 8-11, 2020. The conference theme is Globalization, Pan Africanism, and the African Business Climate. A draft preliminary program is on our website. I apologize for the delay in getting the completed program to you earlier than now. It is because of coordination challenges with our host. Nonetheless, I believe your will find the conference very meaningful and enjoyable. We have exciting activities including symposia, caucus, professional development workshops, and experiential trips. As you prepare to join us in Lagos, Nigeria, for the conference, I suggest you review the travel information (included in this newsletter) about hotel, transport, logistics, and general comport.
