Recent turbulent events worldwide make it pressing to ask ourselves as members of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), what roles can and should the academic association play in the world beyond its professional charter. The panelists first present several initiatives of collective action for social good, and then critically argue for and against taking such action. We aim to set the ground for gauging the opinions and priorities of the audience as a message to the AIS on its mandate.
