The Finance and Economics special interest group
of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is looking for new members to join its committee.
The special interest group (SIG) aims to promote the use of statistics and statistical methodology in economics and finance. The SIG held its inaugural event
this year on administrative data sources and the opportunities and challenges they provide.
We welcome applications from more professionals working in the industry, all areas are welcome. We are particularly looking for people who are keen to contribute new ideas for SIG activities and actively help organise events.
As a committee member, there will be opportunities to actively engage with others with interest in statistics in finance and economics. We hold three committee meetings per year, which can be attended in person at Errol Street, London (travel expenses paid), or remotely by teleconference. Much of our core business is communicated over email.
