Dear Macro members,

Greetings! I hope all of you are enjoying very productive and busy semesters. Maybe even too busy, like mine! I hope all of you will find just a minute to review the student award information on the web site. We have changed the award criteria this year, and have eliminated the required macro analysis paper. Submiting your students for macro awards couldn't be easier! We have also added a new student award, so please go to our web site and check this out. The deadline to submit students for awards is March 1, 2005.

We are in the process of mailing out workshop flyers for our 2005 Musician's Workshop. The dates of the workshop are June 3-4. The workshop will be held at Monona Terrace here in Madison, Wisconsin. All of the workshop information, including registration information, is included on the web site. We still have room for presentations during the poster session, so please send in your abstracts.

Just a reminder, travel stipends for the workshop are on a first come first served basis, so register early!

Best wishes,
