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 New Orleans, Louisiana (November 2022). 

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.

2022 Social Chair: Kimberle Kelly

Note: The TIG also hosts a Discussion Series for conversations centered on critical issues in STEM education and training. The 2022 TIG Business Meeting will be held virtually on November 17th.

  • Don't miss the Final 2022 Happy Hour. Join us and Learn About Leadership and Other Service Positions in the TIG. We have many opportunities for professional growth and national service within the TIG. Most positions have a training period so you do not need any prior experience. Plus everyone can get their feet wet with a "member-at-large" position.
