Happy Hours

Happy Hours

The social hour provides an opportunity to stay connected with your colleagues (and meet new ones) throughout the year, culminating with what we hope can be an in-person social at the AEA conference in Washington, D.C. (November 2021). 

The format for the meetings will be flexible based on the number of attendees. We may stay in one Zoom window for smaller groups, while in larger meetings, we will create breakout rooms to allow for dynamic conversations among smaller groups. We can also consider switching rooms midway through the hour to engage with another set of colleagues. There are no rules, just fun, so mark your calendars to join us.

  • We are excited to relaunch our STEM TIG Happy Hours on September 15 at 4 pm EST. We invite you to join your STEM colleagues for a fun, relaxing conversation. It is also not too soon to begin thinking about the AEA Annual Conference and inquiring about elections for the leadership team for 2023. We have our incoming 2022 leadership team ready to lead us in the next year. We hope you can take a few minutes next week to pop on and say hello. We'd love to hear about any great summer vacations or plans for the fall with your projects. Hope to SEE you next week.
