Happy spring from AAEA! The 2020 AAEA Annual Meeting is just over 10 weeks away. There are several important deadlines approaching in the upcoming weeks.
We are continuing to plan for the 2020 AAEA Annual Meeting taking place July 26-28 in Kansas City, MO. The AAEA Staff and Board are aware of the concerns and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our top priority is the health, safety, and security of our meeting attendees. We are closely monitoring developments and we appreciate the concerns and information shared with us during this time. We will continue to evaluate and let our membership know the status of those meetings and if we do cancel what alternatives are planned.
In order to participate as a presenter at the annual meeting, the following items must be completed by 11:59 pm CST on Monday, June 1, 2020:
Failure to complete these items on time may result in your presentation’s withdrawal from the annual meeting. If you know that you are unable to meet these requirements by the deadline, please reach out to the AAEA Business Office as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AAEA Trust is able to provide a number of travel grant stipends to graduate students and early career professionals. Early Career Professional and Graduate Student (domestic and international) travel grant applications are due May 15, 2020. Additional information can be found on the travel grant page, and applications can be submitted here.
There are nine Pre/Post-conference activities to choose from this year, including the return of another Local Brewing Industry Tour. This popular event is expected to sell out, so make sure to sign up early! Even if you have already registered for the meeting, it is not too late to sign up. Descriptions and pricing for these workshops are located on the Pre and Post-conference Workshop page. If you are already registered and would like to add a workshop or luncheon, please contact the AAEA Business Office at email@example.com.
There are a number of restaurant and entertainment options within walking distance of the hotel, but if you would like to take time to explore the city there are several different travel choices available. Please see our transportation page for more information.
