Welcome to the Southwest Michigan Chapter

Receiving its charter in January of 1975, the Southwest Michigan Chapter is one of five established Michigan chapters. The chapter ensures statistics is promoted in the southern portion of the state, covering such areas as Kalamazoo, Portage, Grand Rapids and Allendale. The Southwest Michigan Chapter consistently looks for methods to bolster the field of statistics.


In April 2013, the Southwest Michigan chapter of the ASA solicited nominations for chapter officers.  No elections were necessary, since exactly one nomination was received for outgoing Treasurer Casey Jelsema and outgoing Secretary Michelle Donald.  The current chapter officers are:

Kirk Anderson – President

Bradford Dykes – Treasurer

Melissa Plets - Secretary
