Chapter Spotlight: PANJAAPOR

by Ashley Hyon, PANJAAPOR President
Thanks to all the hard work of our fantastic board the Pennsylvania/New Jersey chapter of AAPOR (PANJAAPOR) continues to grow stronger each year by having yet another record high turnout for our December event featuring Gary Langer of Langer Research.  The event was held at Princeton University where there was a half hour of refreshments and networking followed by Gary providing a post mortem analysis of the election.  All in all we had ~60 folks attend with almost half being non-members. 
PANJAAAPOR also co-sponsored an Eagleton Institute Event featuring several renowned pollsters and leaders within the AAPOR Community.  The featured panel included Scott Keeter (Pew), Cliff Zukin (Rutgers), Joe Lenski (Edison), and Natalie Jackson (Huffington Post) and was moderated by our own Ashley Koning (Eagleton).  The event was open to the public with discussions focused on the 2016 Presidential election and the future of survey research related to polling. 
We also concluded our third annual student paper competition and below are our three winners:
First Place Winner:  Andrew Daniller of University of Pennsylvania – “Amplifying the Effects of Winning and Losing: Partisan Media's Effects on Perceived Electoral Integrity in the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Elections”
Second Place Winner:  David Hunter Walsh of Rutgers University – “Changes in Presidential Approval Due to Perceived Policy Shifts”
Third Place Winner:  Kyle Morgan of Rutgers University – “The Power of a Picture: The relationship between support for the Supreme Court and the symbols of judicial legitimacy”

All three have been invited to present at our spring event which will be held at University of Pennsylvania on Thursday 3/30/17.  The student presentations will be followed by a young professional/student networking event.  Andrew Danilier will also be presenting in NOLA at the next national AAPOR conference.
