Here's an organisation that deserves promoting - The International Association for Applied Econometrics. What more can I say?
Well, I had better add something!
"The aim of the Association is to advance the education of the public in the subject of econometrics and its applications to a variety of fields in economics, in particular, but not exclusively, by advancing and supporting research in that field, and disseminating the results of such useful research to the public."
There next Annual Conference will be held in London, U.K., in June 2014, and the line-up of keynote speakers is impressive. Submissions of papers are due by 1 February 2014, and there is a nice prize for the best paper presented by a graduate student.
