Dawn Thilmany, a professor at Colorado State University and the president-elect of the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association, was part of that team, and she said they had access to a wealth of reliable data on farmers selling into local markets from the USDA Agricultural Census and food hub surveys conducted by Michigan State University.
I will begin by thanking those who have given comments on the draft AAEA strategic plan. This is an opportunity to develop important priorities for our association. This will guide programming and budget decisions in years ahead. Our board will review the input from members to develop a final version that will be shared with the profession.
Our sessions at ASSA were well-received and the T.W. Schultz lecture by Susan Athey gave our members a fascinating insight into her work on causality in machine learning contexts. I encourage our profession to pursue these applications to enhance the opportunities in both academia and in the private sector.
