AAEA presidents have a three-year term, which maintains leadership continuity. Their roles evolve from planning in the President Elect year, to implementation in the President year, to follow-up and mentoring in the Past President year.

This column offers retrospect and prospect, focusing on the new Applied Economics Teaching Resources publication, government relations, mentoring, AAEA journal publisher, and budding initiatives.
