A Message from WSS's President,
Mike Larsen

If you work with data and statistics in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, we encourage you to join the Washington Statistical Society (WSS)!

WSS offers opportunities to:

  • Network with colleagues in your field,
  • Participate in numerous seminars and workshops,
  • Continue your own statistical education,
  • Increase the level of quantitative literacy in area schools,
  • Help to motivate and develop the next generation of statisticians.

The WSS is the largest, most active chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA) with almost 900 members. Our members work in the government, academic, and private sectors, spanning many disciplines. Members' interests and expertise cover an extensive range of areas in applied and theoretical statistics, data collection, survey methods, and allied subjects.

Our activities include a large and varied technical seminar program, short courses, social events, and service opportunities. WSS members receive our monthly email newsletter (The WSS News), with announcements and descriptions of forthcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and listings of job openings and job-seeking members' credentials. Our website provides information on additional events, WSS contacts, and a WSS history.
