Golf Coordinator Craig Hill has organized the Annual AAPOR Golf Outing on Thursday, May 13 at Harborside International, with tee times starting at about 8 a.m. Harborside, while only 16 miles from the Loop, offers a links-style layout and has been compared to Scottish tracks such as Muirfield. The course has elevated tees and greens with stunning views of Chicago’s skyline. Golf club rentals are available at the course for $40. More information can be found at

Fun Run/Walk
AAPOR’s Fun Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 15 at 7 a.m. Join fellow early risers for some friendly competitive exercise in our annual two-mile Fun Run/Walk. Transportation will be provided to and from the event, and all participants will receive bottled water. More information will be posted on the message board at the conference, and volunteers will be available Saturday morning to guide runners to the shuttles. A signed waiver form will be required for participation.

Applied Probability
Few games better illustrate elementary probability theory than poker. The derivation of an optimal game strategy appears to be beyond current game theory and has confounded mathematicians, statisticians, and AAPORites for years. So, if you want to ponder one of the most popular practical applications of probability, join us Saturday night after the awards banquet for our Annual Applied Probability session. Information on the location of the sessions will be available in the final program.

Speed Networking
What better place than an AAPOR Annual Conference to meet people in the survey industry who can give you tips and suggestions for future career opportunities? This might include getting pointers to improve your resumé or actually learning about job openings that would fit your skills and interests. You will have two opportunities during the conference to spend 10-15 minutes meeting representatives from various organizations and learning about the work they do and the possibilities of upcoming openings. Full details will be available in the final program.
