At the division’s business meeting a motion was put forward to change the division’s name from Media Management & Economics (MMEC) to Media Management, Economics & Entrepreneurship (MMEE). It is thought the name change would better reflect the diversity of our research, teaching, and PF&R interests and would help market the division to a larger audience.

According to the division’s by-laws, changing the name of the division requires a change to our by-laws. Changes to the by-laws must to be published 30 days before a vote can occur. Thus we were unable to vote on the name change at the business meeting. Not wanting to delay the vote until August 2015 at the next business meeting, the division voted to conduct the name change vote online. Notice of the proposal was provided 30 days ago and can be viewed at: https://mmedivision.wordpress.com/2014/08/25/mme-name-change-proposal/

The motion to change to the by-laws is as follows:

Change Article I of the by-laws


“The name of this organization shall be Media Management and Economics Division.”


“The name of the organization shall be Media Management, Economics, and Entrepreneurship.”

It is now time to vote on the motion. Please vote by visiting the link below and recording your vote. The vote will remain open for two weeks. Please vote only once.
