AERE Annual Luncheon, Saturday, January 6, 2007
Presiding: Trudy Ann Cameron (AERE President, 2007-2008)
The AERE Luncheon at the Allied Social Science Association meetings is an opportunity for AERE members to
enjoy a break from intensity of three days of panels and research presentations. The Luncheon provides some informal time to
