    If you would like to organize a session, please send your proposal for the session to Chris chris@redmapleeconomics.com


    Organized Sessions Deadline: Oct. 15, 2018


    In addition to our normal sessions, this year we are soliciting authors/presenters who have a desire to present papers on ethics in forensic economics.  We are presently seeking three to four papers on this topic.  If you have a desire to submit a paper on this topic, please send a proposal to Chris Young, identifying that you have an interest in this panel. 

    Please note that the above dates also correspond with the submission dates for the Eastern Economic Association Annual Meeting, should you have a desire to submit additional papers there. 

    At this moment in time, the conference registration is not open on the EEA website, but you can book your hotel.  The hotel is the Sheraton New York City, Times Square.  Unfortunately, at this time the EEA has not provided any special information or link to register.  I have registered at the hotel directly and identified myself as a participant in the EEA conference.  There are many hotels in the area, some less expensive options should you desire to look elsewhere.  The EEA has provided the following deadlines.  As more information becomes available, I will share it with the NAFE membership.

    Conference Registration Deadline: Jan. 15, 2019
    Hotel Reservations Deadline: Feb. 1, 2019

    Please email 
    chris@redmapleeconomics.com or call at 347-522-0480.

    Wishing you all the best, and hoping to see you in New York,
