Welcome to History
The long cherished dream of the teachers and students of economics in Andhra Pradesh became a reality when the Andhra Pradesh Economic Association (APEA) was formed at a meeting of the Andhra Pradesh delegates to the 64th Annual Conference of the Indian Economic Association held on 29-12-1981 at Tirupathi. At this meeting, the constitution of the Association was adopted. It was registered under the Societies Act of 1860 in May 1982 (Reg.No.120 of 1982, CTR).
It started with 20 life members and 202 ordinary members in 1982-83. It has now
d under the Societies Act of 1860 in May 1982 (Reg.No.120 of 1982, CTR). 600 life members from not only all parts of the state but also from other places in the country. It has been the endeavor of the association to involve large number of university and college teachers and research scholars with an intention of focusing local issues wherever the conference is organized. Though membership was confined mostly to the university teachers in the beginning, now it enmeshes affiliated college teachers as well.
