AAPOR Member Profile: Ashley Hyon
If you are in Toronto this May, you can follow the cowbell to find Ashley Hyon. Ashley is one of the behind-the-scenes folks that keep the AAPOR conference running. She has served in a variety of roles – docent, judge, conference support. Most recently, she led the 2018 Speed Networking event in Denver. She said that it is a lot of work leading up to the conference, but the actual event – working with volunteers and the “infamous” cow bells – is so much fun, she agreed to do it again this year.
