Posting Announcements
If you have an announcement or other piece of information you would like to share with chapter members, you can post it at this web site.  There is no charge for this service for members of the San Francisco Bay Area ASA chapter, although any material is subject to certain constraints on space and content. (This means it can't be too long and it should be at least somewhat related to statistics or the Bay Area or both.)
You can send items via e-mail to Dean Fearn, the webmaster, at
