Changes at ASHEcon!

New Back Office

Anthony Lo SossoThere are big changes afoot at ASHEcon. First, we have changed offices! ASHEcon is extremely pleased to have entered into an administrative services agreement with the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management, better known as APPAM. Some of you might already be familiar with them and attend their excellent meetings. This arrangement was effective May 15, 2017. You’ll begin noticing some changes right away. For example, should you need to mail us something, our address is now:

American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon)
1100 Vermont Avenue NW, Suite 650
Washington, DC 20005

Our phone number remains the same, (202) 737-6608 I’m not sure what our old fax number was, but it’s now: (202) 496-0134. Our general email is now info@ashecon.org. (That’s right, no more AOL!) Of course you can always reach me at tony@ashecon.org.

The biggest improvement that you will definitely notice is far greater capacity to respond to member needs and a much deeper “bench” to support our conference and other activities. In short, I am thrilled with this new arrangement and I’m confident you will be as well.

Conference 2018 and beyond

Speaking of conference activity, we are deep into the planning process for ASHEcon 2018 hosted by Emory University, June 10-13, 2018. The call for abstracts will be dropping very soon. It is going to be an outstanding meeting.

Even more exciting is that the meeting after Emory will be held in Washington DC June 23-26, 2019. That’s not a typo: by popular demand, ASHEcon will be occurring annually starting next year! This is a huge change for us, but we believe the field is ready for an annual meeting. Please let me know what you think, though. We want your feedback! Stay tuned for more information.
