What we're about

The Orange County/Long Beach Chapter of the ASA (OCLBASA) exists to serve statisticians, biostatisticians, actuaries, and students of statistics who work and/or live in the Orange County/Long Beach area. Each year the Chapter presents a Careers Day on statistics, a Poster Competition for High School AP statistics students, and other activities designed to serve our members and serve the community at large. Chapter activities are selected and designed to offer the opportunity for academic and non-academic professionals in statistics to build networks that benefit both groups. Finally, the Chapter Sections on Statistical Education, Statistical Consulting, and Statistical Computing offer a structure for organizing and presenting activities that will serve local statisticians who are particularly interested in these areas of statistics. We invite anyone in the Orange County/Long Beach area who has an interest in statistics to become a Chapter member. More information about the Chapter and its activities can be found on the Chapter's website at http://community.amstat.org/OCLB/Home/
