AbstractYou are the Executive Director of a large professional association planning your organization's annual convention. While the association's board approved your earlier recommendation that he be held in Cincinnati,in the intervening months fourteen groups in the city have initiated a boycott movement, appealing to organizations such as yours not to hold their convention in Cincinnati as a protest against the police shooting of a young African American man. Should you respect the boycott, or have the convention in Cincinnati?
