This year the Economics Club plans include an open house and BBQ at Salem Willows, movie nights, a tour of the Boston Economic Adventure and a trip to the Samuel Adams Brewery.  It will alsocontinue to participate in economics contests at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. In recent years, a four student team from Salem State competed in the regional New England contest against 18 other colleges including MIT, Harvard, Dartmouth, and BC.  The Salem State team -- Isaiah Hull, Henry Tsau and Kent Leung -- placed second as Harvard received the top prize. 

Members of the Economics Club volunteer to score the Economics Challenge, a high school contest that is held annually in the Spring at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

The Economics Club sponsors the Economics Department Speaker Series and other events during the year.
