This is an email I just sent to the RESECON listserv:
As you may know the Western Economic Association International meetings are being held in Denver, CO June 27-July 1, 2014 (http://www.weai.org/conferences.html). Since this conflicts with the WCERE there will be no AERE organized sessions at the WEAI this year. But that doesn't mean that non-sponsored sessions can't be organized. That double negative means that, since I'm not able to go to the WCERE and would like to attend an economics conference, I would like to improve the experience by organizing one or more environmental and resource economics sessions this year at the WEAI (and submission fees are waived for organized sessions).
So, if you are also unable to attend the WCERE meetings and would like to attend the WEAI meetings please let me know ASAP. The deadline for individual papers is December 15 but the deadline for sessions is not until February 1. I'd like to know if an organized session is possible before I miss the 12/15 deadline.
P.S. Please don't hedge your WCERE bet with feigned interest in the WEAI, I'm hoping for a very low dropout rate (i.e., I'm hoping for great sessions at the WEAI!). In other words, if you are planning a WCERE submission, please don't submit to both.
