Our 30th Joint Meeting provides an opportunity to reflect on our work and accomplishments and establish our view for the future of our U.S./Japan Panel on Wind and Seismic Effects. The Panel has helped us, in the United States, in Japan, and in the world, to (1) focus, coordinate and amplify efforts of government, academia and industry to better understand extreme wind and eatthquake phenomena, and (2) increase the resistance of our built environment and society to their destructive effects. Is it not time to commit ourselves to the solution of the problem of destructive winds and earthquakes? Can we make it the objective for the next 20 years of the Panel to work together, with the international wind and earthquake communities, to provide: (1) the knowledge of extreme wind and earthquake phenomena; (2) the practices for planning design, construction, operation, maintenance, and rehabilitation of our built environment; and (3) the incentives for societal actions to apply the practices that together will end the threat of wind and earthquake disasters?
