CHAPTER PURPOSE AND ORGANIZATION
Chapters are the grassroots of the American Statistical Association. It is in the Chapters that members of the statistical profession come together to identify common interests and achieve common goals. A Chapter is the local organization of the Association.
The broad objectives of a Chapter, like those of the Association itself, are to promote statistics and its applications and to increase the contributions of statistics to human welfare. More specifically, the objective of a Chapter is to increase the unity and effectiveness of all those in its area who are interested in or concerned with statistical problems. To this end a Chapter may engage in many of the activities that the Association engages in worldwide. These include holding meetings; producing publications; participating in educational efforts for its members and for various public groups; providing information concerning the application of statistics; and, in general, serving society with statistical thinking and making society aware of statistics as a science.
