The Latin American Regional Committee (LARC) was created in the 80´s to promote regional cooperation in the fields of probability and mathematical statistics and their applications.

In 2007 the Latin American Chapter of the Bernoulli Society changed its name and structure to Sociedad Latinoamericana de Probabilidad y Estadística Matemática (SLAPEM) and its committee continued being the LARC of the Bernoulli Society. Since then SLAPEM is also associated to the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). Every member of the Bernoulli Society baring Latin American nationality or Latin American academic affiliation can be joint members BS-SLAPEM at no charge, by filling the SLAPEM's association form at
