**September Update and Instructions for FDA/Industry Statistics Workshop Session Chairs/Organizers**

We hope you are just as excited about the 2009 FDA/Industry workshop to be held on September 23-25 of this month. A few odds and ends as we get ready for this exciting event:
  1. Speakers and attending organizers must be registered at the conference, if you have not already done so, please register using this link: At this point, all reserved hotel rooms are fully booked. However, alternative hotels within reasonable distance of the conference are listed here:
  2. Instructions to upload the presentation will be forthcoming from our ASA colleague in the next couple of days. Please watch out for them. This will allow registered conference participants to access and print out this material ahead of time. We ask that session chair to also keep a copy of all presentations from your session on a USB drive as a backup on the day of the conference.
  3. Limited spaces are still available in some short courses. Please sign up now if you are interested. The short courses are a great opportunity to keep up with cutting edge statistical methods taught in a way relevant to statisticians in food and health industry and a good value at $100 per course.
  4. A print program is being finalized and will be provided the day of the conference with program information. Please visit the FDA industry website and review the on-line program for accuracy and send any corrections to Kathleen Wert at the ASA ( as soon as possible.

We cannot thank you enough for your help and support. The program looks stellar and together we will make the 2009 FDA/Industry workshop the best year yet!
