Executive Committee


  • The Executive Committee has the power to nominate the Executive Director and the Treasurer, and to refer these nominations to the Board of Directors for action, and to recommend to the Board of Directors policies and actions that promote the welfare of the statistical profession. It also has to evaluate an annual budget to submit it for approval or modification to the Board of Directors. The Executive Committee has to discharge such other responsibilities as the Board of Directors may assign to it.

This notification has to explain the urgency of the action.
