The 60 Topical Interest Groups are the heart and soul of AEA. Each TIG is defined around a special topic or interest and creates a forum whereby the knowledge, experience, and skills of each member can become a resource that the entire community can leverage. TIGs serve many roles for AEA, including: reviewing proposals for the annual conference, curating the vast learnings submitted, and expertly connecting the education to the conference theme.
More than anything, TIGs are valuable in the way that they bring together AEA’s diverse membership to make a large association feel like home.
Joining a TIG is an exclusive AEA member benefit and is your ticket to a community of experts who share similar backgrounds and work settings. Through TIGs, members have access to a network of professionals for collaboration on ideas and practices and a well of invaluable knowledge on topic areas of interest.
Your participation is based on your availability, and there is no specific obligation associated with your TIG membership. Being active in a TIG allows you to increase your depth of knowledge in a specific area as well as gain leadership opportunities. Some TIGs are very active with vibrant online discussion lists, resource websites, and special networking events, while others tend to focus their efforts around the AEA annual conference.
