Getting Specific with ASA’s Sections, Special Interest Groups

1 June 2017 159 views No Comment

Statistics is a diverse profession, with statisticians working in areas such as health care, manufacturing, defense, and national security. Each area may make use of different methodologies and applications. To aid our members working in these subdisciplines, the ASA has 28 sections and six interest groups, which are subject-area and/or industry related and provide benefits specific to their members’ interests.

Is there a section or an interest group right for you? The Council of Sections representatives to the ASA Board of Directors asked officers of each section and interest group to provide a brief description of their section or interest group. The responses can be found by clicking on “informational slides.”

There are no dues to join an interest group. If you decide to join a section, the first year of membership is free. Subsequent section annual membership dues are generally less than $10 and even less for student members.

If you plan to attend JSM this August in Baltimore, drop in on a section’s business meeting or mixer. View the online program for locations and times.
