Dear ASAP Colleagues,
Time flies and we are already reaching the end of February. This is just a quick reminder to those of you who may be considering putting together a panel for the AAA meeting in Denver to start planning it soon. The deadline for submission (details below) is 15 April, but it is a good idea to start organizing your panel proposal sooner rather than later. At the Annual Business Meeting there were a lot of great suggestions for possible panel themes, including policy issues around health, environment, climate change, natural resources, security and media, among others.
We look forward to receiving your ideas.
