Last week, SBCA co-sponsored five panels at the Society for Risk Analysis Annual Meeting in Arlington, Virginia, as well as represented SBCA and the Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis at an exhibit booth. The panel sessions were well-attended and panelists included several SBCA Board members, as well as additional experts from among our membership.

The Society is pleased to announce the results of its annual election. We welcome several distinguished practitioners and scholars to our Board.  We thank all the members who participated in the voting process and hope you will join us in congratulating the Society’s recently elected officers and new Board members for 2016. The terms of the new Board members are staggered to equalize the number of positions that open each year.

SBCA sponsored two panels at the Southern Economics Association annual conference on Saturday, November 21.  One, organized by JBCA editor Glenn Blomquist, focused on the benefits and costs of environmental and health policy.  The other, organized by SBCA vice president Susan Dudley, applied benefit-cost analysis to understanding regulatory impacts.
