In October the chapter sponsored a visit by Rhonda Crate of Boeing's Analytics and Information Management Organization. She gave a colloquium talk titled, "Using split modeling and visualizations to show contributing factors and predictions for high risk scheduling activities."
We had our first winter potluck at Dr. Jan Dasgupta's residence.
More colloquium speakers will be brought in and members will be giving workshops on data literacy to Pullman High School students. The chapter will also be collecting resources to help teaching assistants in statistic courses. A social bowling event is in the works.
