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.
These articles will appear in an upcoming special issue on COVID-19. Articles will be added to the collection as they publish online ahead of the special issue publication in early 2021.

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.
Applied Economics and Teaching Resources
The O*NET Data Collection Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, is seeking the input of expert Economists on our own job market characteristics. As the nation's most comprehensive source of occupational data, O*NET is a public resource for millions of job seekers, employers, veterans, educators, and students at www.onetonline.org.
Post-Conference Workshop (PC54)
Upon being accepted for this workshop, mentees will be required to submit a completed working paper that they would like feedback on to email@example.com by June 30, 2021. This will give the designated small group mentor enough time to review mentees’ work.
We are planning a post-conference workshop on data linking. Please take this 15-minute survey to help us tailor the program specifically to the needs of its participants, and be entered to win a $50 gift card. Multiple gift cards are available.
AAEA is very excited to announce the creation of the new Special Purpose Fund the Uma Lele Mentor Fellowship Fund for Women. This fellowship supports a mentorship relationship between an early career woman agricultural, resource and environmental economist from low income and lower-middle income countries, and a mentor who is a member of the AAEA. More details are available on our website. Donations to this fund are currently being matched 1:2, so donate now!

AAEA at ASSA
President-Elect Madhu Khanna is soliciting proposals and suggestions for AAEA invited paper sessions at the 2022 Allied Social Sciences Association (ASSA) Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, January 7-9, 2022.
The objective of AAEA sessions at the ASSA Annual Meeting is to share new knowledge of interest to economists. The AAEA encourages sessions that will draw widely from ASSA attendees, including sessions jointly sponsored with other ASSA member associations.
You are invited to a voluntary online survey regarding your opinions on Pre-Analysis Plans and Pre-Registration. To improve transparency in research, these might become mandatory at one point and it is of the essence to stay abreast of current research guidelines. Conversations are taking place requesting all researchers who use data, regardless of primary/secondary or experimental/observational data, to improve clarity and transparency in all stages of analysis. Your opinion matters as your response can guide the development of both concepts in your research field. The implications of these concepts on researchers in the area of agricultural, environmental, resource, and development economics are not well understood. Results from the study will inform researchers and research institutions, which may ultimately benefit researchers, such as yourself.

Please join other NAREA members for an open conversation on anti-Asian racism and concerns affecting AAPI (Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander) scholars within the association and beyond. This will be the first of a series of biannual listening sessions hosted by NAREA leadership. The purpose of these sessions is to provide a safe space to reflect on experiences and share ideas for how NAREA can be a better professional home for all members, particularly for members from underrepresented and historically underserved groups. All NAREA members are invited to attend, including those who don’t identify as AAPI.
