James M. Poterba
In addition to my role as a faculty member at MIT, I am engaged in a number of outside activities, including serving as President of the NBER, a trustee of the College Retirement Equity Fund (CREF) and independent director of the TIAA-CREF mutual funds (www.tiaa-cref.org), and serving as a trustee of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (www.sloan.org). I serve on the Panel of Economic Advisers at the Congressional Budget Office (www.cbo.gov). In addition, during the last three years I have received compensation for lectures or presentations in excess of $500 from each of the following organizations: American Economic Association, Dimensional Fund Advisers, Elon University, the Investment Company Institute, Queens University, the University of Rochester, and the University of Wisconsin.
