How to Submit an Annual Meeting Workshop Proposal:

Proposal Preparation and Submission Instructions

To submit a workshop proposal, please complete the form available HERE. This form includes space for you to describe your workshop objectives, proposed instructor(s), target audience, and proposed syllabus.

Proposal Selection Process

All workshop proposals will be reviewed by the SRA Workshops Annual Meeting Committee. The committee will select up to 12 workshops to be offered. Selection criteria will include the following:

*Relevance to SRA Membership
*Clarity of workshop objectives
*Clarity of skills and knowledge that participants will gain
*Organizers’ proposed plan for recruiting participants
*Qualifications of the workshop organizers to deliver the proposed content

Organizers of workshops selected for potential inclusion in the Annual Meeting program will be notified no later than July 1. Please note that once a workshop is accepted, final approval to offer the workshop is contingent on having a sufficient number of enrolled participants to cover the workshop costs. Workshops with fewer than 3 half day or 5 full day enrolled participants by November 29, 2021, will be cancelled. Organizers are responsible for advertising their proposed workshop as widely as possible to ensure sufficient enrollment.


Each workshop be supplied with a screen, cart, projector, and three power strips at no cost to the organizer. Costs of additional equipment will be deducted from the compensation provided to workshop organizers. Coffee break(s) are also included at no cost to the organizer.

Workshop Fees

Workshop tuition fees will be standardized by SRA. For 2021, these fees will be $80/$100 for a half day workshop, and $120/$140 (prices are early bird/onsite).

Financial Compensation

Contingent on meeting minimum enrollment requirements, workshop organizers will receive $50 per enrolled participant for a half-day workshop and $70 per participant for a full-day workshop. Any remaining funds will be provided to SRA to cover the cost of the workshops and to offset annual meeting costs. Organizers may offer their share of the financial compensation to the Specialty Group(s) of their choice, or to funds supporting student travel to the Annual Meeting.

In addition, organizers of any workshop meeting minimum enrollment requirements will receive up to three (3) complimentary (non-transferrable) registration for the SRA Annual Meeting. Additional organizers (beyond three) will be allowed to register for the conference at early-bird rates.

How to Co-Sponsor an Event with SRA:

The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) welcomes opportunities to co-sponsor events organized by other organizations, or specialty groups within SRA. Co-sponsorship provides event organizers with outreach to SRA members. It helps SRA provide additional opportunities for professional education and networking to its members.  

Application Guidelines:

If a person wishes for SRA to co-sponsor an event, an Event Co-Sponsorship form must be submitted. All applications are reviewed by the SRA Conferences and Workshops Committee and a decision will be made within 3-4 weeks. SRA reserves the right to choose which events will be featured on its website. If you have additional questions, please email events@sra.org.

Event organizers are encouraged to connect with SRA’s Communication team if additional materials are needed or if you have questions about promotional opportunities via SRAComms@burkinc.com.

The information you provide on the form will help SRA determine whether your event is an appropriate one for co-sponsorship. We are interested in whether:

  • The event would be of interest to SRA members
  • The objectives for the event are consistent with SRA objectives
  • The meeting is open to anyone who is interested to attend

SRA co-sponsorship is non-financial. We publicize co-sponsored events on the SRA website and in regular communications to SRA members. Events that are co-sponsored by SRA are regularly featured in SRA’s monthly newsletter under the section titled, “Upcoming SRA Co-Sponsored Events,” with the link to the event’s website.

Event organizers must:

  • acknowledge SRA co-sponsorship in any form of promotion for the event
  • use the SRA logo on event materials (which SRA will provide)
  • provide information about SRA (which SRA will provide) to event attendees 
  • provide us with a report back that describes how the SRA logo was used and how SRA was acknowledged during the event
