Dear Members and Friends of the USDA Economists Group,


Happy New Year! What a difference a year makes. We’re moving ahead instead of being shut down. So here are some updates:

You can join or renew by giving cash or a check payable to “USDA Economists Group” to Treasurer Bill Janis (Room 5526-S) or me (Room 5550-S).
