Chair, ASA Section on Statistics in Sports

By: Joseph Hilbe

Starting Jan 1, 2014 I begin my position as Chair of the Statistics in Sports Section of the American Statistical Association. From 2007-2011 I was Chair of the Sports Statistics committee of the International Statistical Institute (ISI), the world association of statisticians. I look forward working with section membership in continuing the development of a truly outstanding section.
