AAPOR 2016 Conference Approaching Fast

by David Dutwin, Conference Chair

It has been a year unlike no other in the world of survey and public opinion research. New data gathering and analytical techniques continue to grow and develop at breakneck speed. The TCPA has impacted all who conduct telephone research. Perhaps the most interesting primary season on record has pollsters busier than ever. Shifting public sentiment on a range of issues are evolving quickly in an ever changing world. Challenges in measurement arise as the world gets ever more complex, and new opportunities to mine administrative and other big data open new paths of measurement. Given so many developments in so many corners of our field, what is a survey researcher to do? 

Go to the 2016 Annual AAPOR Conference, of course! There are multiple panels, session, and posters on all these issues and more. Opportunities to gain greater understanding, assess the status of the field, and network with like-minded professionals abound. I encourage all to attend what will be a fabulous conference. I am honored to be the steward of such an important event in such exciting times.

I hope to see you in Austin!
