The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas are sponsoring the fifth annual “day ahead” conference on Thursday, January 5, 2012, (the day before the beginning of the 2012 ASSA meetings in Chicago). The Federal Reserve System employs a large number of economists whose primary research interests relate to financial markets and financial institutions. This is an extremely important area, as witnessed by the heated policy issues debate in recent years. The goal of the “day ahead” conference is to help build a community among these economists, as well as to give them the opportunity to develop ties outside the System. Holding the conference around the ASSA meetings has been helpful in increasing the number of attendees.
All System staff members are invited to attend, but must register in advance.
Additional questions may be addressed to Blanca Sepulveda in the Research Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (contact information to the right), or to members of the conference organizing committee.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago in January, a “day ahead” of the start of the ASSA meetings.
