History of Western Casewriters Association

Western casewriters was started by Dick Eisenbeis in 1989 at the Western Academy of Management. It has convened an annual case-writing conference in the round-table format since then to help train, develop and support case-writers. The authors can choose to send in cases for the double-blind peer-review part of the conference or send embryo cases that they would like to discuss at the conference.
