“From 2018 to 2024, food-at-home inflation was 24%, but over the same period, fats and oils inflation was 83%. The increased demand for these oils from the United States has also led to booms in production in countries such as Brazil and Indonesia, and some of the land conversion into these vegetable oil crops could result in deforestation. Greenhouse gas emissions are a global challenge.”

President's Message

Rudy Nayga
AAEA President

May 2024

As an added service to the Code of Conduct Policy that we already have in place, the AAEA Executive Board has approved the establishment and implementation of a Reporting Lockbox. This initiative will allow members to log allegations of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation involving other members via an encrypted, time-stamped online tool. It will provide members with a confidential avenue to document incidents and offers prevention and support measures. Key features will include a privacy policy, user authentication, and account management. We will share more information as we iron out the logistical details, including the development of the online lockbox system. The AAEA Board has also approved a proposal to hold an Early Career Mentoring Workshop in Davis, CA in December 2024. Thank you and congratulations to the Mentoring Committee for receiving a NIFA conference grant funding for this workshop.
