Dex Whittinghill, 2004 Program Chair, encouraged topic contributed paper sessions for 2004 JSM. This year, there were seven luncheon roundtables held, although there were also three that were cancelled due to low enrollment. There will be three invited sessions at 2004 JSM: TEAMS, CAUSEweb, and a session chaired by Joan Garfield, as well as an invited session co-sponsored with IASE on training of government statisticians. Ron Wasserstein, 2004 Section Chair, announced that the 2005 Program Chair will be Karen McGaughey, Cal Poly.
Katherine Halvorson, Council of Sections representative, reported that Continuing Education suggestions for Stat Ed were discussed, although they are too expensive for most Stat Ed members to attend.

Joan Garfield, Section Chair, gave the Chair's Report. At the Executive Committee meeting, funding was approved for AV equipment for the Isolated Statisticians when such equipment is needed. The Committee approved $3,000 for the TEAMS conference. The Committee approved funding of nonmember registration fees in topic contributed paper sessions subject to up to six people for one day registration fee and only one nonmember per session. She encouraged early registration for roundtables to avoid the cancellation problem encountered this year.
