Abstract

As anyone familiar with Ward knows, he likes to talk about his research. For this, he needs an audience. It should not be surprising, therefore, to find that Ward has always been eager to help create organizations that sponsor meetings at which decision scientists can talk with one another. This brief chapter outlines his contributions to the development of six ongoing organizations, plus his efforts to organize one super meeting in 2000.
