  5. September 2017 Announcements


    1) We have increased our membership from 650 to 691, out of which 223 are students.  Please continue spreading the good fame of our section. It would be nice to reach the magic 800 in the next couple years.  Unfortunately, we can no longer gift membership to our students, we can only give donations to the Section and designate it specifically for student membership. Please consider doing this.

    2) Share with me your impressions about this year’s ASA, and specifically about our section’s presence at it.

    Membership News

    The good news is that according to the September 30th roster, our membership has increased to 697. This is a 7% increase from last year. Thank you all who reached out and recruited colleagues and students! Keep up the good work! We continue being a bottom-heavy section, so to speak: about a third of our members are students, which I think bodes well for future growth.
