Topical Interest Groups

Topical Interest Groups (TIGs) are a major component of the life of AEA members. Each TIG is defined around a special topic or interest to subgroups of AEA. TIGs coordinate their efforts through AEA and participate actively in AEA's annual conference through reviewing proposals in their area of interest and developing a strand of conference sessions. Members of AEA may join up to five TIGs as part of membership.
