Our network of sections and local groups provide an excellent opportunity for our members to connect with statisticians with similar interests in their local community. They organise stats-related events, contribute to the RSS’ policy work and strategic aims, and offer members the chance to network with statisticians from a broad range of backgrounds to share best practice.
Take a look through the slides below to find out more about the groups we run and how you can get involved.
The RSS initiative, Statisticians for Society has taken a further significant step this year towards increasing the opportunities for RSS fellows to volunteer their skills for good causes.
The Society has always encouraged members to give their time and skills to charities – indeed, one of its four key strategic objects is ‘for statistics to be used effectively in the public interest’. And when the Statisticians for Society initiative launched in 2014, the Society was able to start bringing volunteer opportunities to members across the UK and overseas via partner organisations DataKind and Statistics Without Borders.
