All undergraduates interested in statistics are welcome.  It’s close by, but you do need to register.

Best regards,

> Dear colleague, 
> This is a follow up to an earlier note regarding StatFest 2015.  The organizing committee is finalizing the program, and with students back in school for the Fall semester, we want to actively advertise and promote the event.  We would appreciate you posting the flyer, forwarding this email (with attachment) to your colleagues, and helping us reach out to your institution’s students in the relevant departments.
> StatFest is a one day conference aimed at encouraging undergraduate students from historically underrepresented groups to consider careers and graduate studies in the statistical sciences. The conference is an ongoing initiative of the American Statistical Association through its Committee on Minorities in Statistics. The conference includes presentations from established professionals, academic leaders, and current graduate students that will help attendees understand the opportunities and routes for success in the field. Panel forums include information and tips for a rewarding graduate student experience, achieving success as an academic statistician, opportunities in the private and government arenas, among other topics.
> The next StatFest will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015, at The University of Chicago (Chicago, IL) and co-sponsored by Abbott Laboratories. Please help us to spread the word about StatFest to underrepresented minority undergraduate students from the mathematical, natural and behavioral sciences, engineering, economics, and all other quantitative disciplines and encourage them to come to this event. There is no cost to attend the conference, butregistration is required. If several students will be coming from the same institution, we can offer some assistance with costs of ground transportation (e.g. van or bus rental). Also, we will hold a poster session at the end of the day that will allow undergraduates with research projects an opportunity to present their work.
> A flyer is attached; more information and a link to the registration form are available on the StatFest website http://community.amstat.org/cmis/events/statfest <http://community.amstat.org/cmis/events/statfest>.
> We look forward to seeing you and your students at StatFest!
