A Message from SBCA President Dale Whittington

After much discussion, the SBCA Executive Committee has decided that the SBCA 2022 Annual Conference will be held online March 17-18 and 21-22, 2022. I had very much hoped that we would be able to have both a small in-person conference and an associated online conference; however, the selection of the venue was proving complicated given our desire to minimize our financial risks if we were forced to cancel the in-person part of the conference. Personally, I am disappointed for us to have to make this call. I was really looking forward to seeing you all in person.  Given the surge of the Delta variant in many parts of the country, we felt that keeping the option open for an in-person part of the conference was getting increasingly complicated and have decided to focus our energies on making an online conference as good as possible instead.

Conference Abstract Submission Portal Now Open!

We are excited to announce the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis is now accepting proposals for the SBCA 2022 Annual Conference! 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"; however, abstracts on all topics related to benefit-cost analysis are welcome. 

The deadline for submission is 11:59 pm Eastern US time, December 4, 2021. Learn more>>




Registration will open in early December.
