Members of the ASA’s San Antonio Chapter listen to the seminar titled “GIVE to the ASA” presented by ASA President, Sastry Pantula.

Sastry Pantula, ASA president, visited the San Antonio Chapter on March 29 and gave a seminar titled “GIVE to ASA.” Chapter members benefited from learning about the organization structure and strategic plan of the ASA. He also discussed his focus areas within the strategic plan—Growth, Impact, Visibility, and Education—and presented the excellent progress the four working groups for those focus areas have made so far.

The president talked about providing targeted benefits, including mentoring, to younger statisticians. He presented some examples where statisticians are having an impact and also emphasized the importance of publicly speaking about how statistics are a key to innovation. He reminded the chapter members to actively participate in the ASA elections and also encouraged everyone to fill out the census form. The visit was very much appreciated by chapter members and the dean of the College of Business at University of Texas, San Antonio.
