Welcome to the Northeastern Illinois Chapter

American Statistical Association

The NIC-ASA was formed in 1984.  Its purpose is to foster statistics and its applications and to promote the interests of the statistical profession among all groups in the Northeastern Illinois area having an interest in or being concerned with statistical problems.   The chapter primarily addresses this objective by organizing a Spring Training Course and by working with the Midwest Chapter of the ICSA (International Chinese Statistical Association) to sponsor a joint Fall Meeting.  The responsibility for organizing that meeting alternates between the two groups yearly.  In addition, NIC-ASA holds monthly officer meetings, publishes newsletters on the chapter website, and publishes chapter chatter articles on the ASA portal.   Other ways of accomplishing this objective are constantly being sought.   If you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to send an email to the chapter at northeasternchapterasa@gmail.com.

More specific information about the chapter can be found in the navigation links that are in this website.


The NIC-ASA 2023 annual meeting was held on November 10, 2023.  At that time, the newly elected chapter officers were identified.   They are:

President-Elect: Lei Shu, AbbVie; Secretary: Jiewei Zeng, AbbVie; Treasurer: Dina Elsouda, Astellas;
