Sharing best practice

We have created a structure of groups and meetings to help our members get involved, network, learn what’s going on in their local areas or in their industry, and above all, share best practice with one another. 

  • We organise around 100 meetings a year, giving our members plenty of opportunities to learn, share best practice and meet other members of the statistics community from different industries and around the UK. Meetings are either free or offered at a discount to members

  • For our members who can’t attend all our meetings, we record a number of them which are then available on our website as free podcasts or videos

  • Fellows receive a discount to attend the RSS Annual International Conference which brings together almost 500 participants to listen to a range of respected statisticians present their latest research and case studies and debate issues of interest

  • All our members are invited to join any of our local groups and special interest sections, offering local, national and sector specific networking opportunities

  • Every year, members who have made outstanding contributions to statistics are recognised by their peers through our prestigious awards. Nominations are made by members

  • Our CStat members are invited to mentor members applying for the professional accreditation of Graduate Statistician

  • We encourage our members to participate in our Statisticians for Society programme. Working in partnership with Datakind UK and Statistics Without Borders, our members can offer their time pro bono to good causes

  • Members are encouraged to nominate other fellows for one of our prestigious awards
