The Leeds/Bradford local group of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is looking for volunteers to join the committee for 2020, as ordinary members. Ordinary members don’t have specific duties; instead, they contribute ideas to planning and delivery of a programme of events.
For the 2020 committee, we would particularly like to diversify and welcome applicants with some of the following characteristics:
- Professional sector
- Young statisticians
- Student statisticians
- Female statisticians
- Ethnic minority groups
- Geospatial statistics
- Causal statistics
The committee organises 4-5 events a year to actively engage the local statistical community and anyone with an interest in statistics. We aim to share statistical expertise with local organisations and industries, and communicate the value of statistics to school pupils and students. Our 2019/2020 events include artificial intelligence, outreach with statistics, and good practice with statistical software. A list of events can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/rssleedsbradford/home/2019---2020-session.
The RSS is committed to ensuring an inclusive and welcoming environment for all who care about good data and statistics.
