The Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) was founded in 1985 to advance management education, research, and practice in Australia, New Zealand, and beyond.


ANZAM is a professional membership academy, operating as a Company Limited by Guarantee.  It is a non-profit organisation.

The governing body of ANZAM is the Board of Directors which is chaired by the President with support from the President-Elect and Immediate Past President. The Board also includes a Secretary and Treasurer, elected representatives from five geographical regions across Australia and New Zealand, and two representatives for postgraduate students. In addition, there are co-opted members who provide specific expertise for special projects and sub-committees.

The President serves a one year term in this role which starts at the Annual General Meeting in December, and is succeeded by the President-Elect.

The ANZAM Board of Directors meets four times per year, typically in March, June, September and December. The Board meets with Institutional Member representatives twice a year, in June/July and at the ANZAM Conference in December. The Board also has a one-day Strategy meeting each year to consider ANZAM’s future direction and activities.

The ANZAM Board of Directors has a committee structure aligned with the strategy and priority goals for the academy. Each Committee has a Chair/Convenor and a workplan for the year which includes key projects and initiatives that are underway.
