Dear CCASA Members,

Happy New Year!

We ended 2019 with a great Holiday luncheon. Thank you to all those that attended this festive event and to our speaker Professor Stephen T. Ziliak. I hope those that won his book have read it and are sharing with others!

This month we have another unique luncheon planned which is not our typical speaker format. I will be moderating a panel discussion with three women in Analytics that have been in Analytics for collectively over 50 years. I'm so excited to learn more about the journeys of our panelist as well as learn from their experience. I posted this event on LinkedIn so please share with your network to make this event a huge success so we can repeat this format in the future.

As we enter into 2020 we are busy planning our two major events for the year, our conference and our workshop. We are finalizing the topics for each of these and will be sharing them soon.   Please be on the lookout for these events and share with your networks. Keep in mind that these events are constructed to be educational and typically the registration can be reimbursed as a training expense. It doesn't hurt to ask!   These events not only support our Chapter's financial stability, but more importantly, have allowed us to continue to bring experts in our field to the forefront and make the Chicago Statistical community on par with the best and the brightest.  I look forward to seeing everyone at these upcoming events.
