Celebrate Professor Ron Howard Symposium and Gala

Our appreciation to everyone who joined DEF to make a successful retirement party for Ron. He and the decision analysis he taught at Stanford University deeply affected the lives of many. The tributes to Ron were truly inspiring and heartwarming. The symposium presenters shared many fascinating, and often humorous, experiences with their journeys in decision analysis. 

We hope to stay in touch with everyone on the guest list and look forward to more of Ron's contributions to DEF.
