(2) Promote, feature and encourage activities, such as organizing or co-sponsoring scientific sessions or authoring statistical magazine and newsletter articles, which highlight a diverse set of collaborative case studies and successes.

(3) Recommend and support systematic salary surveys of the ASA members from Industry and Government.

(4) Periodically announce the partnership award program and communicate the progress on initiatives and activities.

Composition: The committee has nine members, three of whom are appointed/reappointed each year by the ASA President Elect for three year terms. One member from each of the academe, government and industry sectors should be appointed/reappointed each year. The President Elect will appoint one of the members of the committee to serve as the chair, and the sector represented by the individual chosen as chair should rotate among the three sectors as succeeding chairs are selected.
