Statement regarding the RSS and PSI

On 1 October, The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry Ltd (PSI) began to discuss formally whether a union of the two associations could benefit both societies.

RSS and PSI share many goals and activities. Discussions will evaluate whether the two societies could improve upon the delivery of those goals and activities without altering the character of either society to the detriment of their members, and will take place among a joint assessment committee (JAC) with appointees from both societies.

The committee will meet formally in October, December and February. If discussions do identify a model for a union that the JAC believe will benefit both societies, each society will assess this model for the value it brings to its own members.

Further updates to the RSS membership will be given via Statslife and the member’s bulletin.  If the assessment committee recommends a union then the decision would be taken by the Society’s Council, most likely in March next year.
