Upstate New York Society for Risk Analysis

Upstate NY SRA provides a multidiciplinary forum for professionals to: participate in workshops and seminars at local and regional levels; encourage advancement and understanding of new methodologies and technology in the practice of risk analysis; and serve as a resource for the local scientific, regulatory, industrial/municipal, and public affairs communities.

Since 2005, Upstate NY SRA sponsors events (typically free, always open to the public) that focus on diverse societal problems and the data and models that inform decisions that impact upstate NY residents. Upstate NY SRA has welcomed SRA Fellows from the Speakers Bureau to lead dialogue about analyses describing environmental and human health, terrorism preparedness, climate change, and hydraulic fracturing. In 2012, we partnered with SRA members in New England, Nevada, Australia and New Zealand on the SRAonCampus new initiative grant project (see past events tab), and Nevada members will continue to partner with us as a newly forming SRA regional organization.

Please consider becoming a member or renewing your membership and supporting future Upstate NY SRA efforts.
