SBCA Sessions at Fall Conferences

SBCA is an organizational affiliate of the Southern Economics Association (SEA), the Western Economics Association International (WEAI), and the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA). We will have the following co-sponsored sessions at the SEA and SRA meetings this fall, and encourage you to attend if you will be at those meetings:

Southern Economic Association Conference (November 21-23, New Orleans):

SBCA is sponsoring two panels at the upcoming Southern Economics Association annual conference. One, organized by JBCA editor Glenn Blomquist, will focus on the benefits and costs of environmental and health policy. The other, organized by SBCA vice president Susan Dudley, will apply benefit-cost analysis to understanding regulatory impacts. Both will take place the afternoon of Saturday, November 21. More information

Society for Risk Analysis Meeting (December 6-10, Arlington, Virginia):

SBCA is co-sponsoring five panels at the upcoming Society for Risk Analysis Annual Meeting, including a symposium on retrospective analysis, and two roundtables, one on decision analysis for uncertain futures and the other on improving the link between risk assessment and economic analysis. Please find the full list of sessions here. We will also have a table in the exhibit area.
