A free-to-attend webinar for professional statisticians.

The state of and prospects for professional accreditation for statisticians

Ron Wasserstein, Executive Director, American Statistical Association

The ASA has been accrediting statisticians for just over five years (PStat and more recently GStat). Some things have gone very well. Other have been disappointing. In a rapidly evolviing, high demand field, how will credentialing keep up. What will its purpose be in the future? Ironically, accreditation is needed by the profession but perhaps not required by many members to practice as professional statisticians. This webinar will review the current status of accreditation, and reflect on what needs to change. The perspective is that of the ASA, but in the Q&A we will be able to generalize to include the RSS perspective with CStat, CSci and GradStat.

The presentation slides will be made available at prior to the meeting.
