2018 Annual Meeting Recap

A huge thank you to everyone who joined AAEA in Washington, D.C. We hosted over 1,600 attendees! Your continued support is essential and appreciated. We hope to see all of you again next year in Atlanta, GA!

We would also like to thank the Selected Presentations Committee, Topic Leaders, and Reviewers. Not only did they perform their duties of analyzing abstract submissions and creating consistent sessions, they also worked tirelessly on creating new ways to improve the experience of presenters and attendees.

The 2018 AAEA Annual Meeting featured a new discussant method in select sessions. Based upon feedback received after the meeting, we are going to continue this method and possibly expand to additional sessions. AAEA welcomes all comments and concerns. If you have any additional ideas on this discussant method or anything else you would like to see in the future, please feel free to reach out to the AAEA Business Office at (414) 918-3190 or

In addition, thank you to all of the Section Leaders and members who helped organize the many successful Track Sessions. We can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!
