Hi all,

Apologies to people who get more than one of these requests, or who don't go 
to the Joint Statistical Meetings.

I'm looking for chairs for about a dozen contributed paper sessions sponsored 
by the ASA section on statistical computing at the Joint Statistical Meetings in 
Vancouver this year, Sunday August 1 to Thursday August 5.

The duties of the chair are
   - introduce the speakers, pronouncing their names correctly
   - make sure the talks don't go over their allotted time.
   - if there is time for floor discussion, ensure that at least one question is 

The rewards are also pretty minimal: the gratitude of the ASA and possibly of 
the speakers.
