ASA Members Rise to New High

1 February 2013 596 views No Comment

Annual Fund Drive contributions beat last year’s record

    ASA members have again set new marks for generosity in financial support of their association. More than 700 members contributed a total of nearly $53,000 to the ASA’s Annual Fund Drive during 2012. This is another record, up almost $15,000 (39%) from last year’s record figure. (Note: Memorial gifts designated for scholarships or other specific purposes are not included in these totals.)

    These funds helped the ASA promote the practice and profession of statistics in several ways during 2012. Here are examples of the ways gifts from ASA members were put to good use:

    Supporters of the 2012 annual fund drive are listed at the end of this article. Also listed are those members who have taken part in the last three annual fund drives. The ASA is deeply fortunate to have such consistent support. We are also grateful to several companies who made matching gifts to the ASA (Amgen, GE Foundation, Macmillan, Millennium Pharmaceuticals, and Pfizer).

    Members participate in the annual fund drive because they see value in what the ASA does and want to help it do more. Tim Hesterberg, senior statistician at Google, said, “I’ve gotten a lot from the ASA, met a lot of people and learned a lot at conferences and from ASA journals. It has definitely helped my career. I’m donating so the ASA can continue its great work and keep costs low for those who need it.”

    “ASA membership has been an indispensable resource to me since I joined as a graduate student in the early 1980s,” noted Marie Davidian, ASA president. “The advocacy efforts ASA undertakes to promote our profession, the importance of statistics in science and policy, and the sound practice of statistics benefit all of us. By giving to the ASA, I can help to further the association’s programs and ensure that it can continue to pursue its mission to be a leading voice for the profession, not just in the U.S., but around the world. In this International Year of Statistics, there is no better time to acknowledge the association’s role in my personal professional development and in the advance of our field through my gift to the ASA.”

    I choose to give to the ASA annual fund to support efforts to increase statistical literacy

    Andy White, senior research statistician at the National Center for Education Statistics, also has seen the value of the ASA to his career and society at large. “My 30+-year career in statistics has been largely devoted to supporting data-based decisionmaking at national, state, and local levels. ASA has given me the ability to stay abreast of issues and methodological developments, interact with and learn from statisticians in a broad range of practice areas, and opportunities to have an impact on our profession through service to the association directly. I choose to give to the ASA annual fund to support efforts to increase statistical literacy and the use of objective data to guide the nation now and in the future.”

    Teri Utlaut, principal engineer and statistician at Intel Corporation, said she chose to give to the ASA annual fund because of her passion about educating young people and college students about our profession. “I don’t think enough students are aware that a career in statistics is an option, and I would like more to discover what a great career it can be.” Utlaut said.

    Of course, the ASA’s richest support is the thousands of hours of volunteer work our members contribute. We thank you all for that support, and we encourage our newer members to take part as well. Hesterberg notes there are many ways to do this. “Get involved,” Hesterberg says, “by organizing a conference session, or volunteering for a section or local chapter; you’ll meet people and learn more about what is going on in statistics.”
