Mark your calendars - 2016 annual meeting

We're pleased to invite you to our annual chapter meeting. This will be held Friday, April 22, 2016 at the Hotel St. Francis. Please visit 123Signup and click "Register" at the top of the page to reserve your place at the meeting.

We will have a full day session with a short course on Propensity Scores by Dr. Lane Burgette in the morning. In the afternoon, there will be technical talks by chapter members, preceded by brief official meeting for the Albuquerque chapter at which we will elect officers and announce awards. Only chapter members need to attend the official meeting, but all are welcome. Lunch will be on your own.

Schedule:
8:00 AM Arrival/Continental Breakfast
8:30 AM - 12:30 PM Short course on 'Propensity Scores' by Dr. Lane Burgette. This topic deals with how we can perform causal modeling when we have data from observational studies, as experiments are often impractical to conduct. No prior knowledge of propensity scores is expected.
12:30 PM - 2:00 PM Break For Lunch
2:00 PM Business agenda (election of new officers, Mu Sigma Rho, etc.)
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM Technical talks: If you are doing research related to statistics we encourage you to give a short talk for the chapter. There will be a cash prize for the best presentation.
