and Information Technology
The Academy of World Finance, Banking, Management and Information Technology (AWFBMAIT) registered in Australia aims to share research knowledge that exists around the world in the areas of finance, banking, management and information technology through AWFBMAIT conferences, seminars and publications. Manuscripts for AWFBMAIT conferences and journals will be subjected to a double blind peer reviewing process. Manuscripts can come from all areas of finance and accounting; banking; management, including marketing, human resource management and tourism management; and information technology.
The Academy of World Finance, Banking, Management and Information Technology (AWFBMAIT) is a registered organization in Australia and it is part of the Academy of World Business, Marketing and Management Development (AWBMAMD) – http://www.academyofworldbusiness.com.
Membership of the Academy of World Finance, Banking, Management and Information Technology (AWFBMAIT) is by attendance and participation in any of the AWFBMAIT activities at least once every two years. This means that membership in the organization is not perpetual. The key criterion of membership is participation and attendance. To retain membership, one must continue to participate and attend AWFBMAIT activities at least once every two years.
Membership status shall start at the “Member of the Academy” level and one can then be promoted in rank through Senior Associate Member, Senior Member, Associate Fellow, Senior Associate Fellow, Fellow, Senior Fellow, Distinguished Fellow, Senior Distinguished Fellow, Executive Fellow, Senior Executive Fellow, Executive Distinguished Fellow, and Senior Executive Distinguished Fellow of the Academy. For example, an Associate Fellow of the Academy of World Finance, Banking, Management and Information Technology is entitled to use the letters AFAWF or AFAWFBMAIT.
Membership status will automatically be upgraded when a member attends any of the AWFBMAIT activities. For example if you are an Associate Fellow now, you will become a Senior Associate Fellow if you participate and attend the next seminar or conference. Becoming a member does not require completion of an application form (as long as you are attending and participating in any of the Academy’s conferences and seminars at least once every two years). However, if after attending a conference, a member wishes his or her membership upgraded to a higher status, the member can submit a letter or send e-mail to the President of AWFBMAIT. Such a letter or e-mail will include the status that the member is applying for, current CV of the applicant (including qualifications, experience, publications, and contributions to the community). Each application will be reviewed by two members of the Academy that are nominated by the President. If the promotion application is successful, a fee of US$195 will be charged to cover the cost of processing the application.
Termination of Membership
A member who does not participate in any of the AWFBMAIT conferences or seminars at least once every two years shall have his or her membership of the Academy automatically terminated. The membership of such a person will however be automatically renewed as soon as the person starts to attend and participate in the Academy again.
