SSA’s Young Statisticians Network held a successful Young Statisticians Conference on the Gold Coast last year. The months have passed quickly since then and we are already in the process of planning the next YSC, to be held in 2019 in Canberra!
To create a conference committee and organize this popular event, we are looking for some energetic members interested in helping to shape the YSC2019.
How much of a commitment is involved in being a YSC Committee member?
All meetings are held by teleconference at no cost to the participants. Initially meetings will be held every six weeks or so, changing to monthly as the conference draws nearer. From memory, our YSC meetings rarely go on for more than half an hour.
Although we are keen to have students and early career members on the committee, involvement is open to all members of the Statistical Society.
Being able to add a role on the YSC2019 Committee to your resume is attractive to employers and funding bodies, a great opportunity to expand your network and of course, a lot of fun!
Have I managed to pique your interest? To apply for a role on the committee and get involved with the conference planning for our Young Statisticians, please click here (https://goo.gl/forms/kHtQeKIuXuLHUBNN2) and add your details by 10 June 2018.
