Excerpt
The composition of the planning committee has also changed over the years. As funding sources expanded, so did the committee. Participation at the early meetings was by invitation only. Today a more expansive approach is used, balancing invited and contributed presentations rather than relying solely on open discussion. Following each session is a formal discussion by one or two persons, followed in turn by general floor discussion. Both formal and informal discussions are captured for inclusion in the proceedings. This has served to broaden the conference topics to encompass new areas of inquiry and identify important areas for future consideration. It is also an acknowledgment that the field of health survey research is growing rapidly, as are its challenges.
