USDA Economists Group
NIFA economists partner with the USDA Economists Group (http://www.usdaeconomists.org/) in support of the group's mission to be a responsible advocate for USDA economists within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Washington community, the agricultural economics profession, and society at large.
The group provides services and pertinent information to its members to aid them in carrying out their professional responsibilities. The group offers workshops and seminars on emerging agriculture, resource conservation, food safety, research, and rural development issues. The group also distributes a newsletter that communicates developments both in and out of USDA that may be of interest to members.
