Branch AGM

The North American Branch holds its AGM in July each year.

Hello AUS and NAB members,

We once again had a good showing at AAEA in Atlanta. We had three sessions, a business meeting, and a social.  Thanks to those of you who participated in our events!

A few notes from the business meeting:

--Mike McCullough has rotated off as AUS Chair/AARES NAB President. I have rotated in to that role, and Tom Wahl from NDSU is the new PEST--that's AUS Secretary Treasurer/Chair Elect and AARES NAB President Elect. Mariah Ehmke is our new AARES NAB Council delegate.

--We are (already) looking for topics for next year's AAEA AUS sessions. Several members raised the issue of drought as one potential session topic. If you have other general ideas, please share them. I'll solicit proposals in the winter, but topic suggestions are (very) welcome now.

--Think about attending the 2020 AARES Conference in lovely Perth! The call for workshop/symposium proposals is out and available on the web. The call for contributed papers and posters will be out in the next day or two. There's talk of arranging some fun pre-conference activities as well. And applying for the Heading South Award, due at the end of next month.

--AJARE is looking for new editorship.

--The AAEA hosts a blog on its web site at http://blog.aaea.org/. Members are invited to contribute blog posts to the site. David Pannell has agreed to provide advice or feedback on draft blog posts, and to liaise with the AAEA office about having them posted online. Contact David.Pannell@uwa.edu.au if you are interested in seeing your work there.

cheers,

Kate Fuller
