Policy Commissions                 



The synergy from having senior international professionals devoted to key technical and geographic topics allows us to leverage dynamic conversations on important issues.  The BIED Society attracks senior professionals to sit on a two year policy commission.  Each Institute Division has a Policy Commission.  Each Policy Commission focuses on two Annual Reports.  One focuses on International Policy priorities and the second focuses on research trends with recommendations on policy research helping to set the research agend for the coming year. 


If you are a senior professional and want to engage with young professionals and senior professionals to set the research agenda and promote change through policy recommendation collaborative team research, please consider applying for one of the BIED Society Policy Commissions.

One of the core tools used by the BIED Society is our series of conferences to bring key professions together to network and learn from one another.  We have chosen to work with Princess Cruises to offer a unique conference experience.  We also appreciate that the Princess offers discounts to hard working military personnel, present and prior.  Princess and the BIED Society thank you for your service!
