About the Event:

The Royal Statistical Society is pleased to invite new fellows to an evening reception hosted by Sara Hilditch, RSS Honorary Officer for Membership.

This event will take place at our London office, with refreshments available from 5.30 pm.

It is open to all fellows, but priority will be given to fellows who have joined the Society in the past two years as a fellow, GradStat or CStat. It will be a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with the Society, learn how to make the most of your membership and find out about getting involved with our work.

It is our chance to welcome you to the Society and for you to meet and talk to RSS staff and network with other fellows. In addition to a short welcome, there will be keynote talks from the RSS president, vice-presidents and executive director.
