2017 Annual Meeting Recap
Thank you to everyone who joined AAEA in Chicago! We hosted more than 1,400 attendees, and greatly appreciate everyone who participated. We hope to see you all again next year in Washington, D.C.!
We would also like to thank the Special Presentations Committee, Topic Leaders, and Reviewers. They once again dedicated much of their time analyzing abstract submissions and creating cohesive sessions, thus resulting in another strong, substantial program. In addition, thank you to all of the Section Leaders and members who helped organize the many successful Track Sessions – congratulations!
As always, AAEA greatly appreciates your feedback, and will continue to use it in order to cultivate future programs and meetings. Comments and concerns from 2017 attendees are currently being evaluated. We are looking intoways to improve the mobile app, how to provide equal and adequate discussion for all presentations, the review process for posters, and how to better assign submissions to topic areas.
