The Society for Risk Analysis is a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, national, or global level. (More information regarding the Society’s mission is available in its Vision Statement.) SRA includes numerous regional organizations around the world that provide opportunities for members to interact with other risk analysts near to their homes. SRA also includes many specialty groups for members to interact with risk analysts in their disciplines. A students and young professionals group is devoted to supporting students and recent graduates with an interest in risk analysis. See our videos to learn more about opportunities for getting involved with SRA.
SRA was established in 1980 and has grown significantly since its founding. The Society has held an annual meeting continuously since 1981. SRA’s flagship journal, Risk Analysis: An International Journal, has been published continuously since 1981 and is the leading scholarly journal in the field of risk analysis.
There are nearly 2,000 members of SRA and many more members of its regional organizations. Members are from academia, government, industry, consulting, and non-governmental organizations. This diverse membership makes SRA a particularly relevant forum for the discussion of leading issues in risk analysis.
SRA has a 16-member Council that provides oversight of the international Society. Councilors are elected by the membership and serve a three-year term. Regional organizations and specialty groups have their own leadership with governance structures determined by the organization or group and approved by the SRA Council.
