President-Elect Seeks Volunteers for AAEA Committees

Members interested in shaping the future of the AAEA can play an essential role by serving on an association committee. Committee service also offers an excellent opportunity for developing contacts and increasing professional networking.

“I invite all members to get actively involved in AAEA through serving on our committees,” says President-Elect Jill McCluskey. “By serving, you influence the direction and priorities of the AAEA, and help us to best meet the needs of agricultural and applied economists. Your work will shape our AAEA Trust, awards and special lectures, membership, leadership selection, publication, statistics infrastructure, outreach, meeting, and career development activities. For established professionals, we rely on your contributions to guide the AAEA’s work. For early career professionals, working on a committee is a great way to build your professional network and service record. Please email us (see below) with your interest in serving.”

McCluskey will make appointments to the following 2015–2016 committees by June 2015:
  • AAEA Trust
  • Awards
  • Case Study Invited Paper
  • Economics, Statistics & Information Resources
  • Employment Services
  • Fellows Selection
  • Galbraith Forum and Award
  • Membership
  • Mentorship
  • Nominating
  • Selected Presentations
For information about these committees and a list of their current members, please visit http://www.aaea.org/about-aaea/aaea-committees.

Any AAEA member interested and willing to serve on a committee should contact Brian Mondragón Jones at bmjones@aaea.org or (414) 918-3190 by April 20, 2015.
