Tickets for luncheons and banquets are not included with the registration cost, but can be purchased separately during registration. Tickets for the luncheons, and other special events will not be sold on-site at the meeting.
Congratulations to our incoming President Elect and Board of Directors!
Thank you to all of the 2021 candidates for running!
“The attraction that people have to investing in farmland is that it tends to be countercyclical to the stock market. It’s a hedging strategy,” said Daniel Bigelow, a professor of agricultural economics at Montana State University, who previously served as a USDA research economist.
It is hard to believe we are already so far into 2021, and we are preparing for another Annual Meeting, having some uncertainty and hard decisions to make about how to best serve our membership. We continue to gather data from you all and are narrowing down to a few alternatives and plans for the 2021 meetings. We heard from over 700 members, 230 selected paper authors and 118 poster presenters, and it is almost evenly split in terms of those AAEA members’ plans and intentions to participate in meetings. So, we will make a final Board decision in the next 2 weeks, but it is very likely some in-person sessions and activities will be held, and now we must get to work figuring out the details.
