SRA and the Future of Risk Analysis

Room: Commonwealth A   12:00 PM

Chair(s): Alison Cullen, Rick Reiss, Jonathan Wiener
The Society for Risk Analysis has opportunities to attract new members and develop new partnerships around the world, to promote the use of sound analysis in research and decisions, and to support the growth of the field into new areas. We face decisions about how to engage in effective discussions of risk choices and science, as well as about the best venues for discourse and debate, and about how best to target our resources for future growth. What shape would you like the future of SRA to take? How and where should it grow, geographically and topically? What do you think is the most appropriate role for the SRA with respect to risk issues of our time - - supporting analytical methodology, publishing new research, convening events, advocating the use of sound risk analysis, making recommendations, or something else? What risk areas should be covered and highlighted by our Specialty Groups structures? How can we best continue to develop and strengthen our international relationships? Join the outgoing president, incoming president, and new president-elect of SRA to share your views in a roundtable discussion of the role and future of the Society for Risk Analysis.
