The ISI and its seven Associations make up the ISI Family. Associations have their own conferences, publications and sub-committees. Associations also co-organise conferences due to overlapping subjects. Participation in the ISI World Statistics Congresses by the Associations make up a large part of the Scientific Programme. ISI Associations are led by their own Executive Committees and Councils. The Presidents of the Associations are members of the ISI Council.
There are currently over 3,000 individuals who are members of one or more Associations. ISI elected members are encouraged to join their Association(s) of interest. Membership of one Association can be chosen by ISI elected members for free. One can be a member of one or more Associations without having elected membership status of the ISI.
