Welcome to the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter

Since 1947, the Colorado/ Wyoming Chapter has been a proud chapter of the American Statistical Association.  We typically host a spring and a fall meeting with a mix of invited and contributed speakers.  Our meetings are open to everyone with an interest in statistics, not just chapter members.  
Our activities are paid for by ASA members who elect to join the chapter during their national membership.  We like to think this additional $9 per year is well spent.  Additionally, we rely on the chapter email list maintained by the ASA to communicate with members.  If you have any suggestions or questions, please let us know.
