Description: The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) traces back to a session of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) held January 6, 1980. Charlie Wolf, Fred Rossini and I organized that session on “Integrated Impact Assessment.” During that all-day meeting, discussion turned to forming an association to succeed the former International Society for Technology Assessment (ISTA). Strategizing carried on through a Chinese dinner. After dinner Charlie opened his fortune cookie and read: “You will do well to expand your business.” Based on this “Fortune Cookie Impact Statement, ” we decided to proceed. © 1989 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
