Conference on Statistical Practice Steering Committee


The Conference on Statistical Practice Steering Committee (CSPSC) is responsible for the program and organization of the annual Conference on Statistical Practice (CSP). The purpose of the conference is to bring together statistical practitioners (including data analysts, researchers and scientists) who engage in the application of statistics to solve real-world problems to provide them opportunities to learn about the latest statistical methodologies and best practices in statistical design, analysis, programming and consulting, and aid them in improving their abilities in consulting with and helping customers and organizations. In conjunction with ASA staff, the CSPSC will make policy decisions for the conference, set and evaluate conference goals in accordance with needs of the target audiences, select sites and dates, recommend registration and other fees, pursue sponsorships, and actively promote the conference.


The CSPSC will consist of up to fifteen members. Six of these are appointed by the President-Elects. Each President-Elect will appoint/reappoint three of these six members for two year terms beginning on March 1. The President Elect also names one of the members he has appointed or reappointed as the Vice Chair, who serves a one year term and then becomes Chair for one year. The CSPSC Chair, in consultation with the remaining committee members, has the authority to appoint additional members (up to the maximum of 15 members) for 1-2 year terms in order to provide the diversity of statistical practice needed to round out the planning of the conference. (NOTE: All members appointed or reappointed by the committee Chair begin their terms at the same time as the Chair’s own term of office.)
