ALEXANDRIA, VA (PRWEB) May 25, 2011

The American Statistical Association (ASA), the nation’s preeminent professional statistical society, today announced that it has elected 58 of its members as Fellows of the Association. The recipients were recognized for their outstanding professional contributions to and leadership in the field of statistical science. The Fellows will receive their certificates at a ceremony on Tuesday, August 2, at the annual Joint Statistical Meetings in Miami Beach, Florida.

“With the coming of spring each year, we are excited and energized by the announcement of the new ASA Fellows,” said ASA President Nancy Geller. “These 58 outstanding members, representing academia, government and industry, have made distinguished contributions to our profession and we congratulate them for this impressive accomplishment.”

The 2011 Fellows are from 25 states, Canada, and Singapore. A list of the Fellows by state/country follows this release.

The designation of Fellow has been a superlative honor in ASA for nearly 100 years. According to the association by-laws, each year the Committee on Fellows can elect no more than one-third of one percent of the total ASA membership as Fellows. Individuals are nominated for the honor by fellow members and, to be selected, must have an established reputation and made outstanding contributions in some aspect of statistical work.

The Committee on Fellows evaluates candidates' contributions to the advancement of statistics, giving due weight to publications, the positions held by the candidates in the organizations in which they are employed, activities within the association, membership and accomplishments in other societies, and other professional activities.
