AAEA is looking into ways to update our website, specifically the Membership page, with photos that better represent our diverse membership. The best way to represent our membership is with our members!
With the pandemic, it's harder to find that backup, says Ashish Shenoy, a development economist and an assistant professor of agricultural and resource economics at the University of California, Davis, and a co-author of the report.
It has been a busy couple of months for the AAEA, with a successful slate of sessions T.W. Schulz lecture “Reconsidering the Economics of Identity: Position, Power, and Property” at the ASSA meetings in January, and hundreds of great selected paper and organized symposia submissions flowing in as we plan for the 2021 Annual meetings. As you might imagine, we are thinking hard about our plan for 2021, including a few hybrid alternatives that would allow us planning flexibility. Beyond the Annual meetings, it has been increasingly clear that our membership will be best served with a more diverse set of activities year-round, even though the Annual gathering may continue to be a keystone event. So, let me share a bit of what we are considering, and stay tuned for more information on 2021 events.
