2010 Annual Conference

AREUEA’s Annual Meeting is held in January in conjunction with the meetings of the Allied Social Science Associations. AREUEA organizes twenty-three sessions during the three day conference, in which selected participants report on research in progress or recently completed. Additionally, AREUEA hosts a Doctoral Session which invited distinguished scholars share their insights and wisdom with students on topics such as career planning, publishing, and research. Furthermore selected students can present their current research at the doctoral poster session which is held in conjunction of a reception in their honor.

Every year AREUEA hosts a joint session with the American Economic Association (AEA) in which topics of mutual interests are presented by distinguished scholars from both organizations. The Presidential Luncheon is featured on the last full day of the conference and is hosted in honor of AREUEA’s outgoing President. In addition to the Presidential address, AREUEA recognizes the generous sponsors of the organization in addition to announcing the recipients of the George Bloom Award, Edwin Mills Best Paper Award, Real Estate Economics Best Referee Awards, and the Homer Hoyt Institutes Dissertation Award.

This year’s WREN Breakfast is sponsored by Freddie Mac and Fifth Third Bank.  The theme of the breakfast is “Having a Voice in Public Policymaking,” and we have lined up a panel of three very accomplished economists who will discuss their success at blending government service and academic research: Susan Woodward, of Sand Hill Econometrics, Bob Avery from the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and Tony Sanders, George Mason University.   If you would like to attend the WREN breakfast, please R.S.V.P. to Cinda Smith ( or 866-AREUEA1) by December 18th.
