SBCA Annual Conference

Held in March each year in the Washington, D.C. area, the SBCA Annual Conference offers a unique opportunity for individuals to gain knowledge, connect with professionals, contribute to the community, and stay abreast of global developments in benefit-cost analysis. Whether attending in person or online, you can expect a rewarding experience that contributes to your professional growth and the advancement of the field.

The SBCA Annual Conference brings together experts and practitioners from around the world, providing attendees with a global perspective on benefit-cost analysis. This exposure to international perspectives can enrich one's understanding of the field and its applications. In addition, the presentations cover a wide range of topics within the field of benefit-cost analysis. This diversity allows attendees to explore various aspects of the discipline, stay updated on the latest research and methodologies, and gain insights into emerging trends and challenges. The conference also offers valuable networking opportunities, allowing participants to connect with professionals, researchers, and practitioners in the field. Networking can lead to collaborations, partnerships, and the exchange of ideas, enhancing the attendee's professional network. The program includes the Society's annual membership meeting, which provides a platform for attendees to engage with the Society's leadership, learn about the organization's plans for the future, and contribute to discussions about the direction of the Society. This involvement can foster a sense of community and belonging within the field. 

The conference is organized by the incoming President and a large program committee, ensuring that the event is well-structured and addresses the needs and interests of the benefit-cost analysis community; however, the contributions of SBCA members and conference participants are integral to the success of the event. By actively participating in sessions, discussions, and other conference activities, attendees play a role in shaping the overall experience and impact of the conference.
