What is AREUEA?

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.

AREUEA organizes three conferences a year, as well as partners with other organizations and agencies, to offer multiple opportunities designed to provide open forums for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of research relevant to applied decision making in real estate finance and urban economics. AREUEA additionally hosts a biweekly Virtual Seminar Series to cover the latest research on trending topics.

Welcome to the New AREUEA Website!

AREUEA SquaresWe have been in the process of modernizing the infrastructure that supports AREUEA operations. The entire membership database, website, and financial system have been integrated using a secure digital platform developed by MemberClicks (the American Finance Association and the Financial Management Association both use it). With Travelink, our Executive Director, leading the work for the past few months, our new system has launched.

If you are an active AREUEA member, you should have received an email directing you to login and change your password. Once that is complete, you will have full access to this new website, including the Members-Only sections.

AREUEA will use the new system to begin the 2022 membership renewal process in November. Conference submissions in 2022 will continue through ConfTools, but you will access this through the new AREUEA website. All current News Bytes, job postings, and other website content have been transitioned to the new site. The largest impact of the new system is actually on the security and efficiency of the administrative functions of AREUEA.
