As I look toward wrapping up my year as your President, I realize what a busy, unique and transformative year we have just navigated together as an Association. I am excited for several reasons….our opportunity to connect (virtually and in person) this summer for our Joint Annual Meeting, the bright future our Association has given the new slate of AAEA and Section leaders announced over the past month and the realization, once again, of the great set of colleagues and members I am honored to know and represent in my role (as I peruse our Award winners, Fellows, and list of mentors stepping up to guide young professionals).

AAEA’s annual Business Meeting will be held during the annual meeting in Austin TX, on Monday, August 2 in Lone Star D-E and will be livestreamed for those who would like to attend virtually.

Additionally, Board members and Editors who are completing their terms will be recognized for their service. Lastly, those in attendance will be given an opportunity to voice any questions or concerns that they may have. A copy of the agenda is available online. We hope you’ll join us in Austin (or virtually)!
AAEA is planning for a hybrid 2021 AAEA & WAEA Joint Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas at the JW Marriott. This will not look like a normal AAEA Annual Meeting. So let us start by laying out some key differences.
The virtual part of our program includes live streaming of the Plenary Sessions, Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony, and two sessions during each concurrent session time. There will also be some additional virtual sessions offered by Sections.
This year there are a number of luncheons and pre/post-conference workshops to choose from. Review the Section Lectures & Luncheons , WAEA & WEC Business Luncheon and reserve a spot. Space is limited, so register early to reserve a place to hear the lecture, enjoy lunch, and network!

Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy
Applied Economics Teaching Resources (AETR) is an online, open access, and peer-reviewed professional publication series. The aim is to provide an inclusive outlet for research, teaching and Extension education scholarship encompassing but not limited to research articles, case studies, classroom games, commentaries, experiential learning, and pedagogy. The goal is to support and advance teaching and Extension education within the scholarly areas of agricultural and applied economics, and agribusiness economics and management. AETR seeks to publish articles that are diverse in both scope and authorship. It serves as a platform for addressing and contributing to our understanding of important societal issues, including inequality and discrimination, as well as how shifts in pedagogy (e.g., growing reliance on remote and hybrid learning modalities) may impact accessibility and inclusion.
