“Most RIN price volatility since 2013 can be attributed to ever-changing blending targets and uncertainty regarding future mandate volumes,” Gabriel Lade, an economics professor at Iowa State University’s Center for Agricultural and Rural Development, told the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s environment subcommittee.
I am truly honored and humbled to be President of AAEA and I was encouraged by the successful 2018 AAEA Annual Meeting. Since both the International Association of Agricultural Economists (IAAE) meeting and World Congress of Environmental Economics were earlier this summer, I was worried about conference fatigue and low attendance. But we had more than 1,700 people in attendance, compared with 1,300 at IAAE and 1,200 at the World conference, which is encouraging. I really liked our conference; it was short and sweet, and I always enjoy our reunions and receptions and the sense of community that are presented. We had four excellent plenary speakers, diverse and interesting sessions and posters, and a wonderful 2018 Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony, all at a great venue. I want to thank all the people who contributed to the event in both AAEA and EDI. They set a high standard for the future.
