MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am pleased to report that the business of ISBIS is proceeding without undue surprises or upsets. Our organization is financially strong, professionally active, and extremely visible. The credit for that success is entirely due to the energy and commitment of its membership.
First, a celebratory announcement. Vijay Nair has been selected to give the William Sealy Gosset Lecture at the World Statistics Congress in Marrakech, Morocco. This is our society’s most distinguished recognition, and Vijay’s long record of research achievement and professional leadership makes him a pre-eminent choice. Incidentally, Vijay has recently moved from academics back to industry, and he is now a statistical consultant in the Corporate Model Risk Group of Wells Fargo Bank.
