IMPACT Baltimore

Interested in giving back to the community while in Baltimore? There are two ways to do so:

  • Drop off donations (school supplies such as pencils, rulers, crayons, and paper) in the donation boxes at the ASA Booth in the EXPO. Supplies will be passed out to schools in the Baltimore area.
  • Connect with other JSM attendees while making blankets (no sewing involved) to be donated to Project Linus. Just drop by Spotlight Monday through Wednesday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to participate.

 

Data Art Show Returns

Explore the “art” in data art with the JSM exhibit featuring data artists. The exhibition will take place in Hall AB, inside the Baltimore Convention Center. JSM hosts thousands of professional statisticians from industry, government, and academia, so this is the perfect opportunity to have your data art seen! Submit your work by May 15.

 

JSM Docents Are Ready to Help!

If you have more questions or need additional help working your way through JSM, find a docent! They have orange buttons and a ribbon on their badges and can provide additional information about the conference and tips for making the most of it!
