A: Leading Farm Foundation as President for 17 years, organizing programs for agricultural and applied economists from academia, industry and government to address critical issues of importance to the agricultural and food supply chains from producer to consumer. Disseminating results often had immediate economic and policy relevance, and in some cases ongoing collaboration among participants produced valuable results for many years.
A: Look for and take advantage of opportunities which fit your skills and particular passion to make a significant contribution to society.
A: Fund innovative ideas to further the impact of AAEA through communicating in not-technical format the research findings and outreach of the profession to policymakers and the interested public.
A: Receiving a call at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning of the Michigan State meetings in 1987 that my son Sean was about to present himself to the world ten days early. My 5 hour drive back to Chicago got me to the hospital to hear his first cries from the hallway rather than being with Helen the whole time as planned.
A: Among highpoints with the agricultural and applied economics profession were moving AAEA from an academically subsidized organization to a free-standing entity with a managing director structure, as well as establishing Sections during my year as AAEA president; serving 24 years as Secretary-Treasurer of IAAE, helping to transform it to a financially strong organization; working with a small group to organize C-FARE in 1995 to create a presence for the profession in Washington, DC; and editing the renewed online-only Choices magazine for 5 years. Working with the profession’s members worldwide was very rewarding. None of this would have been possible without my wife Helen and son Sean living with my constant travel and absence from home half of the workdays and many weekends.
