SAPOR is the southern chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR). The chapter was organized by Charles Powers of the Research Triangle Institute, and was officially accepted by the AAPOR council in January 1978. SAPOR's first conference was held in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in November of 1978 and conferences have been held annually since 1986. Approximately 100 individuals from universities, survey research establishments and polling organizations are currently involved with SAPOR and attend our conference annually.
Our annual conference includes over 30 research presentations, a short course, panel and/or round table discussion, an evening social event and a keynote speech. It is held in mid October in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our mid-year social event happens annually at the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) conference.
