ASA Twin Cities Chapter

Welcome to the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Statistical Association. We aim to support and promote the field of Statistics in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area and surrounding region by connecting academic and industrial statisticians both to each other and to national ASA initiatives. Our membership includes statisticians from the University of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, Medtronic, and other local colleges, universities, and companies.

About the Twin Cities Chapter

"The purpose of this organization shall be to foster in the broadest manner statistics and statistical applications, and to promote unity and effectiveness of effort among all groups in the Twin Cities area having an interest in or being concerned with statistics."

As described in our constitution, we serve as a resource for statisticians and those interested in Statistics in the Twin Cities and surrounding region.
