Executive Council

AAPOR is governed by a 15-member executive council elected by the full membership each year. To ensure consistency in the leadership, the past and incoming presidents work closely with the current president; and current and incoming (associate) Council members also work together.

Voting for the 2014-2015 AAPOR Executive Council election has ended.
