What are the ASA's Accredited Professional Statisticians™ saying?

The ASA Conference on Statistical Practice will provide opportunities for its audience to learn new statistical methodologies and best practices in statistical analysis, consulting, and statistical programming through courses; sessions with papers, panels, and posters; and keynote and plenary presentations. The conference will also provide opportunities for attendees to further their career development through workshops and seminars on effective communication, management and leadership skills in addition to career placement activities.
