Toh Hock Chai retires as Committee Chair and passes the baton to Hizir Sofyan.

Today  marks the last day of me as the Chair of the ISI South East Asia Outreach Committee, after holding this prestigious position of the ISI for the past 6 years. 

My sincere appreciation and thanks to all my wonderful, professional and highly dedicated Committee members, who have given their full support to me, the Executive Committee and ISI, in driving and implementing initiatives that benefit the statistical community.  I also wish to take this opportunity to thank the ISI for entrusting me to lead this highly strategic and important regional Committee of the ISI.

Together, we have extended the outreach of the ISI to the diverse statistical interest groups, societies, associations and individuals in the SEA region via various engagements, events and activities. Of significance, the region has successfully hosted the 2nd ISI Regional Congress in Bali in 2017 and 62nd ISI World Statistics Congress in Kuala Lumpur in 2019.

The ISI has appointed Associate Professor Dr. Hizir Sofyan, Universitas Syiah Kuala, Indonesia, as the new Chair of the ISI SEA Outreach Committee with effect from 1 July 2020.  Let's give our full support to him to lead the Committee. 

Personally, I will continue to participate in the initiatives and events of the ISI and contribute to the statistical community.  I hope all of you will do the same!  I look forward to meeting you in some of these events in near future.  

Once again, thank you for your support and contribution to the ISI SEA Regional Outreach Network and Committee!
