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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
More specific information about the chapter can be found in the navigation links that are in this website.
This year, the ICSA Midwest Chapter is taking the lead in organizing the Joint Fall Meeting that will be held on October 12-13 at the Hilton Chicago / Northbrook hotel in Northbrook, IL. Both the NIC-ASA and the ICSA are, of course, heavily involved in the organizational activities. Information on this Fall Meeting can be reached via the program book and flyer.
