Practical Significance – Episode 34: Exploring ASA Sections and Interest Groups

Did you know the ASA has a section or special interest group for you? These are subject-area and/or industry-related groups that provide benefits specific to your interests. This month, Practical Significance co-hosts Donna and Ron chat with three section leaders: Wendy Martinez, chair of the newly formed Section on Text Analysis; Susan Paddock, chair of the Council of Sections Governing Board; and Sharina Person, chair of the Biometrics Section, which became the ASA’s first section in 1938!

Our guests discuss the benefits of being part of a section or interest group and their motivation for taking on leadership roles. Paddock shares the “big picture,” as she reviews the role of the Council of Sections Governing Board and highlights several of its top initiatives. Martinez and Person discuss current section activities and look to the future. And each shares how section participation enhances the member experience—personally and professionally.

Finally, you won’t want to miss Ron’s traditional Top 10, as he offers up his “Top Ten List of Buckets.”

    This is a very important move. As I worked in industry regulatory science of genetically modified crop, our main focus is different from the insecticide assessment. Discussing in a group of same interest will help the evaluation of the currently applied methods and accelerate the development of new method.
