SGE 2020 Annual Conference Cancelled; Board Elections Ongoing

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

With an abundance of caution for all attendees to the 2020 Society of Government Economists Annual Conference, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel the conference due to the COVID-19 global health crisis. Unfortunately, with the uncertainty surrounding the virus and additional factors, we were unable to postpone or reschedule the conference for a later date in 2020. 

Elections for the SGE Board are ongoing and the deadline for voting has been extended until April 30. See for nominees, bios, and a link to the ballot. Members should have received an email telling them about the election.  If you did not receive the email please contact the current Membership Director Wenhua Di by email.  Members who have already voted need take no action, but we are extending the election period because some members apparently didn’t receive the notification email.
