I want to followup on Bozena’s words by saying thank you to everyone that helped with this year’s conference.  The division owes a big thank you to Bozena Mierzejewska and Ann Hollifield for organizing the pre-conference on “Writing it Right,” Amy Jo Coffey for overseeing the research paper competition, and all our members who volunteered as panelists, discussants, and moderators.

If you missed one of our great referred research panels or would like to know more about a paper you heard at the conference, check out the abstracts from this year’s papers:


Full conference papers will be available shortly at:


And now it’s time to start thinking about the 2015 AEJMC Conference. It will be held from Aug 5 to 9 in San Francisco, CA. Look for a call for teaching, PF&R, research, and pre-conference panels in the next few days. The theme for the 2015 conference is “Global Bridges” so starting thinking about how panels might explore this theme.
