Well, the school year is finally over for me. Exams have been marked and grades are submitted, so now I get to do what I want to do. I am currently working on a few research projects and will be presenting some of the findings at various conferences this summer.
The first conference I am attending is the Alberta Agricultural Economics Association meetings which are being held in Red Deer, Alberta. This is my first go-round as an invited speaker, so that is new. At these meetings, I will be presenting some of my research on agricultural innovation. I have never attended this conference, so I am excited to see the presentations and meet some new people. The world of agricultural economics is a small one, and even more so when it is limited to a specific region within a specific country. For those interested, a copy of my slides are available here
After the Red Deer meetings, I have a few weeks at Saskatoon before on the road to Las Vegas and Atlanta for two other meetings. Then off to Warsaw and Washington, DC in July and August. Should be a fun summer!
