Registration is now open for the SBCA 2022 Annual Conference

We are excited to announce that SBCA 2022 Annual Conference will be held virtually March 17-18 and 21-22, 2022! While we regret that we will not be able to meet in person, we look forward to the opportunity to take advantage of the options available online. The virtual format will allow us to engage speakers and other participants who would not otherwise be able to attend, to record some sessions for later viewing by participants, and to take advantage of the flexibility offered by the online platform more generally.

This year's conference theme is “Analyzing Distributional Consequences and Equity in Benefit-Cost Analysis" with several plenary speakers focusing on the question of how best to handle distributional and equity issues in BCA; however, other sessions will feature all topics related to benefit-cost analysis. Learn more or register now>>
