To formally recognize graduate student presentation in a significant way, we are starting two new programs from 2020 onward.
The first is called the 3MT thesis presentation program.
Lynn Kennedy, Louisiana State University, and David Anderson, Texas A&M University, will be running for the president-elect position.
Sierra Howry, University of Wisconsin River Falls and Rebekka Dudensing, Texas A&M University will be running for the director position.If you are interested to serve the association as president-elect or as a director in the future, please contact me or other in the SAEA Nominating Committee.The EC members at their meeting in Asheville, NC also noticed that the award amount for different categories has been stagnant for many years.Jeff puts an incredible amount of time to make the meeting fun filled and productive for all.The association will continue to provide all the activities it has been offering in the past.Twenty-two universities brought their students for the quiz bowl competition last year.Often times, graduate students present their first professional conference paper at the SAEA meeting.Students will give a 3-minute long presentation on their thesis topic. students in their final years present their job market or equal quality paper.Judges will evaluate and rank performances for the first, second, and third place awards. student job market or equivalent paper presentation competition program. The paper and the presentation will be combinedly judged by the committee consisting of four people.I would also like to request department heads to nominate outstanding thesis, dissertation, and faculty for emerging scholar award considerations.Jeff Jordan has been planning social and other activities for us to enjoy and network at the meeting.
