Professional Statisticians’ Forum

Professional Statisticians’ Forum (PSF) meetings enable professional statisticians to share professional experiences and discuss professional development. The meetings are intended for Chartered Statistician (CStat) and Graduate Statistician (GradStat) members, but all our members are welcome.

PSF events

PSF hosts virtual and face-to-face meetings. Events are held four times a year and typically run for 90 minutes with speakers and Q&A sessions. Many of the meetings are webinars and at least one is held during our conference.

Meeting papers and slides are available on our website at least a week ahead of an event.
We encourage you to pre-register for an event, though this will not always be necessary for webinars.

Dial-in details

Dial-in details for UK and international users and the link to the web conferencing system are provided on this page.

CStat revalidation – your questions answered

Trevor Lewis (RSS Professional Affairs Committee)

This meeting will outline the Chartered Statistician (CStat) revalidation processes being carried out in 2017 for professionally active Chartered Statisticians who have a revalidation date of 1st January 2018. The process for those CStats who do not also hold the Chartered Scientist (CSci) award will be covered, as will the process for those CStats who also hold the CSci award. The presentation will also summarise the outcome of the revalidation process in previous years and will clarify the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirement that underpins revalidation. The meeting should be of interest to all Chartered Statisticians and to all Graduate Statisticians who are on the pathway to CStat status. There will be an opportunity to raise any outstanding questions.
