AREUEA was originated at the 1964 meeting of the Allied Social Science Association in Chicago. AREUEA grew from discussions of individuals that recognized a need for more information and analysis in the fields of real estate development, planning and economics.

Over more than 45 years AREUEA has grown to be the leader in supporting and promoting real estate & urban economics research of the utmost quality.

The vibrancy of AREUEA has been and will continue to be based on individuals who support and believe in the mission of the organization.

Nominations for AREUEA PC&I Officer Position

AREUEA is committed to fostering a collegial and constructive culture that facilitates high-quality research in real estate and urban economics and provides broad-based opportunities for the professional development of its members. To support this commitment, the AREUEA Board approved a Code of Conduct in May 2019 and policies for vetting candidates for AREUEA office and for investigating possible violations of the Code in January 2020. These policies are linked below.

In January 2020, the AREUEA membership approved changes to the bylaws to create a new Professional Conduct and Inclusion Officer (PC&I Officer) position. The PC&I Officer is the primary point of contact and is responsible for administering AREUEA processes related to potential violations of the Code of Conduct or other professional misconduct. The PC&I officer will also collaborate with the AREUEA Board to ensure full participation and collegiality in AREUEA activities for all members. The PC&I Officer shall be appointed for a five-year term by the AREUEA Board of Directors, and may serve a second consecutive term. The PC&I Officer will be a member of the AREUEA Executive Committee and AREUEA Board of Directors.

We are soliciting applications from AREUEA members for the PC&I Officer position. We are looking for candidates with a background in economics, finance, or real estate; good judgment; and a commitment to working collegially with AREUEA members and the AREUEA Board to continue to build an inclusive and vibrant culture.
