St. Louis Fed hosted RePEc workshop

RePEc is volunteer-based, and those volunteers rarely meet. Yet, for the twentieth anniversary of the initiative, the St. Louis Fed sponsored a two-day workshop assembling most core-volunteers and some friends. The main topics of discussion were about contingency planning, both for hardware and people, modernizing our offerings, and recruiting a new generation of volunteers. The intensive meeting yielded some decisions that will become visible over the next months. In the meanwhile here is a group photo:
