REESSA frequently hosts a one-day student conference in April or May each year. The purpose of this conference is to allow students the opportunity to present their work to others. We also generally bring in either a single keynote speaker or a panel of guests in our field to discuss relevant issues of the day. Since 2015, we have been co-hosting our conference with the Alberta Agricultural Economics Association (AAEA).
For information on the Visions 2017 Student Conference co-hosted by REESSA and AAEA, please visit here.
Our 2017 Conference Program is attached below. We would encourage you to read through it to get a sense of some of the research that is being done by our students.
