Regional Communities are formed by Members of the Society who wish to network with medical decision researchers within a certain geographic region, where region may be defined by city, state, country or other geographic boundaries. Groups schedule in-person meetings during SMDM meetings, during meetings of other societies, and/or at other locations chosen by the leaders. Communities also use SMDM Connect for online discussions, information sharing, and networking throughout the year. Each group chooses a Leader or co-Leaders who organize activities for the group.
