AERE Summer Conferences

The AERE Summer Conference is held each year (except in years when there is a World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists) with the goal of offering more opportunities to AERE members. These annual events have been extremely successful.

The 2017 AERE Summer Conference will be held on May 31 - June 2, 2017, in Pittsburgh, PA.

More information coming soon.

AERE Workshop Series 

The very first AERE Workshop was held in 1985 in Boulder, Colorado, offering a focused atmosphere on a specific topic. Since then, AERE has planned 22 Workshops over the years keeping to the one topic focus and usually holding the event in a place of natural beauty. The last AERE Workshop was fittingly held at Resources for the Future in June 2009—the organization that helped launch AERE thirty years earlier in 1979.

A list of recent workshop topics and papers appears below.
