The ASA turns 180 in November! To celebrate, we are designating November 22 ASA Day. But why should we limit the celebration to just one day? We'll be posting ASA history contest questions on our social media November 1, 8, and 15, so be sure to follow us onFacebook andTwitter (#happybirthdayASA) to stay tuned!
Additionally, a haiku challenge will run November 4–21. Any ASA member may participate bywriting and submitting a haiku about the history of the ASA or predicting the future of statistics.
Visit theASA Day website for details about how you can celebrate ASA Day with us.
