SSA Releases New Summary of Public Policy Positions
7 Aug 2008
An integrated summary of SSA's positions on key U. S. public policy issues has been developed by the Government Relations Committee and approved by the Board of Directors. Government Relations Committee Chair, Stuart Nishenko describes it as a "living document" that will evolve as issues emerge and as SSA's position are further defined. President Bill Ellsworth says, "The process of developing this statement has been very important for the Society. It has led us to a clarify our positions and challenge many of our assumptions. These conversations should continue." Nishenko also said it was his hope that members would find the statement useful in communicating with public policy decision makers about issues important to the science and public safety.
The Government Relations committee welcomes feedback on the statement. You may contact the committee via Executive Director, Susan Newman, <snewman [at] seismosoc [dot] org>.
