A huge thank you to everyone who joined AAEA in Atlanta. We hosted over 1,400 attendees! Your continued support is essential and appreciated. We hope to see all of you again next year in Kansas City, MO!
We would also like to thank the Selected Presentations Committee, Topic Leaders, and Reviewers. Not only did they perform their duties of analyzing a record-breaking number of abstract submissions and creating coherent sessions, they also worked tirelessly on creating new ways to improve the experience of presenters and attendees.
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 2020 has in store!
