These pages provide information on the Queensland Branch of the Statistical Society of Australia Inc.
The Queensland Branch organises and runs regular meetings and occasional workshops and symposia. At each meeting, an invited speaker presents a seminar covering aspects of their work of interest to statisticians. Currently, Branch meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, although this may vary to accommodate visiting speakers. For more information on meetings please follow us on Meetup and Facebook or stay on the events pages of this website.
The Statistical Society of Australia Inc (SSAI) was founded in 1962 as a national “umbrella” organisation to support and further the work of state statistical societies already in existence, to establish a national journal and newsletter and to host national conferences. The overall objective of the Society is to further the study, application and good practice of statistical theory and methods in all branches of learning and enterprise. The Society provides optional professional accreditation for members, at the level of Accredited Statistician (AStat) or Graduate Statistician (GStat). Details may be found at the SSAI WWW page.
Membership of the SSAI is open to all those with an interest in statistics and the objectives of the Society. For details, see joining SSAI.
