Dear Members and Friends of the USDA Economists Group,
What a winter it has been! The shutdown postponed our Annual Meeting and Awards program, and the storm yesterday threatened the Ag Outlook Forum. So here are some quick updates:
Our Annual Meeting with awards and food will take place on Thursday, March 21, at noon in Room 107-A of the Whitten Building. Please join us to gather among fellow economists and congratulate award-winning colleagues. We expect to have Chief Economist Rob Johansson and perhaps a special guest to join us for this event.
Our dues, $20 for a calendar year, support all of our activities including the annual meeting, seminars/webinars, and other activities throughout the year. You can join or renew by giving cash or a check payable to USDA Economists Group to Treasurer Bill Janis or me. There is also a Paypal option on our website here: https://www.usdaeconomists.org/join
That link also contains a postal address if you wish to send a check by mail. If you have already paid, thanks!
We had many members stop at our exhibit space on the first day of the Agricultural Outlook Forum. We will be there tomorrow, February, as well.
See you soon!
