Thanks to everyone for your posts about the AEA conference theme and for reading the blogs. With each post, I have learned something new and have been stimulated to think about the theme in a different way.
I realise that many of you may not be able to attend the conference. Don’t let that stop you from continuing to engage in this ongoing conversation. One way is to keep involved is to draw on the AEA e-Library following the conference. The conference presenters are encouraged to post their session materials in the e-Library. Use these materials as the basis for further blogging and conversations. The AEA staff is also working on other ways to provide access to some of the sessions. This will be announced at the conference so keep an eye on the website for these options.
The closing plenary session at the conference on Saturday, October 18, will focus on AEA’s role in supporting a sustainable, equitable future beyond the life of the conference. I’m eager to see what ideas come forth in this session and the direction it encourages for AEA. The results of this session will be available through the e-Library and other means.
I’m looking forward to continuing these conversations at the conference and beyond.
Many presenters at AEA conferences upload their materials to the AEA eLibrary.
