About Us

The Southern California Chapter of the American Statistical Association (SCASA) is a non-profit organization that exists for the purpose of promoting unity within the community of statisticians, especially within the Southern California area, and for the purpose of contributing to statistical education within the professional community and the general public. By its efforts, the Chapter hopes to increase the contribution of Statistics to human welfare everywhere.

The SCASA's mission is to:

1) Support excellence in statistical practice, research, and meetings.
2) Work for the improvement of statistical education.
3) Promote the proper application of Statistics.

The SCASA organizes three standing events per year:
1) Kick-off in December.
2) High-School Statistics Poster Competition in March.
3) Applied Statistics Workshop in April. 

The membership in SCASA is open to all individuals in all fields related to Statistics. The SCASA members have the benefit of being actively involved in organizing local events and activities and voting in elections of the SCASA board. If also members of the national American Statistical Association, the SCASA members have the right to hold a SCASA office. Regular membership dues are $12 per year and $6 for full-time students and retirees. More details on the SCASA membership benefits can be found in Article III of the SCASA Constitution.

The SCASA members are eternally grateful to organizations that sponsor some of the events or contribute books and goodies to give out as door prizes. Some of the main and most faithful supporters in the previous years included Amgen, SAS, JMP, Salford Systems, and CRC Press.
