The System Dynamics Society has recently hosted a New Member Orientation aimed at introducing new participants in the community. The session, led by SDS President, Allyson Beall King, and Director of Outreach, Meagan Colvin, provided an overview of the Society’s structure, mission, and opportunities for member involvement. The agenda included an introduction to the Society’s objectives, its staff, and the myriad of resources it offers.

  • Reduced prices and some free courses for online learning.
  • Free access to the System Dynamics Review.
