Abstract for: Practitioners' Roundtable

A large, important, and vital group in the System Dynamics Society is its practitioners. As a Society, we seek to actively support the practitioner community by developing a sense of community among those involved in or have an interest in applying the system dynamics methodology in practice as opposed to academia or education. The goals and issues that this roundtable seeks to address are: (1) What efforts can the Society undertake to serve practitioners that have heretofore neglected? (2) How to we make system dynamics practitioners aware of each other and their work? (3) How do we publicize the great work that is done by SD practitioners? (4) Discuss ideas on how to create a repository of outstanding practitioner work.
