Executive Council

AAPOR Members
Log in to view email addresses for all committee members.

AAPOR is led by a 17-member executive council elected by the full membership each spring. The Executive Council makes the overarching guiding decisions about AAPOR, including managing AAPOR's budget, creating new initiatives, planning the annual conference, and providing general governance to the organization. The elected members of the Executive Council also oversee committees made up of AAPOR volunteers. 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.
