Why Join NAREA?

 The Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) is a thriving community of scholars dedicated to promoting the public good through applied economic research. Our primary areas of focus include economic and policy analysis related to food, natural resources, the environment, energy, development, rural, regional and urban issues.


Besides NAREA’s Annual Meeting & Workshop, and its journal, the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review. There are many other reasons to become a member of NAREA:

·      All members can participate in NAREA’s Scholars’ Circle program to discuss research and careers

·     The Career Advancement and Mentorship (CAM) Program lets early career scholars  receive one-to-one mentoring from experienced members. Early career members also often serve on NAREA committees, which is a wonderful way to build your service portfolio.

·     Graduate students routinely present at the Annual Meeting & Workshop; it’s a great way to gain experience and build your network. Graduate students can also participate in the Scholars’ Circle program and can serve on some NAREA committees.

·         The deadline for abstracts submission to NAREA annual meeting is February 22, 2022. For more information, please visit


Here are other reasons to join NAREA:

·       NAREA’s membership is large enough to form a meaningful network of scholars but small enough to feel friendlier than many professional associations, especially since many NAREA members are dedicated to sustaining NAREA as a positive and welcoming scholarly community.

·       NAREA is committed to ensuring that diverse voices are heard in an environment that is inclusive and equitable. NAREA has taken many concrete actions to this end, led by its Diversity and Inclusion Committee, including adopting an Events Code of Conduct, holding regular listening sessions on inclusion issues, reserving one keynote in each year’s conference as a Rising Star keynote

·       NAREA membership is affordable. Dues are $40 /year for professional members and $10 /year for student members.

·       NAREA welcomes scholars from any region; you don’t need to be based at an institution in the Northeastern US.
