Aug. 19, 2014
An article by Atul Teckchandani, assistant professor of management, was recently honored with the Outstanding Academic Publication on Membership Organizations Award presented by the American Society of Association Executives and the Institute for Nonprofit Research, Education and Engagement at North Carolina State University.
The article "Do Membership Associations Affect Entrepreneurship? The Effect of Type, Composition and Engagement," which focused on how membership associations can increase entrepreneurial activities in communities, was published in the April issue of Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly.
Teckchandani's research focuses on how different types of organizations in a community collectively affect economic outcomes, entrepreneurial activity and the founding and failure rates of other community organizations. The research draws upon work in community ecology, economic geography, social networks and entrepreneurship.
A member of the campus community since 2010, he holds a doctorate in business administration from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, as well as an MBA from the University of Texas McCombs School of Business.
