SESSION 210 - Public Policy: How SAA Comes to a Position

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As SAA gains a more active voice within the public policy arena, the way in which its positions are created requires both education and discussion. Individuals representing varying perspectives begin a conversation about the hows and whys of creating public policy positions within the Society.  The speakers don’t debate the merits/demerits of a particular issue, but look at the process and reasoning used in reaching a decision about a particular issue. Audience participation is crucial!
