Annual ASSA and WEAI Meetings

TPUG has a long history of presentations at the ASSA meetings, and more recently at the WEAI meetings.  At the ASSA meetings, TPUG holds four sessions – two in transportation economics and two in Public Utility economics.  Historically, one of the sessions is co-sponsored with the AEA.
