The 2015 Conference was a very special one. It was the 70th anniversary of our keystone event and we celebrated with a conference theme of “A Meeting Place,” to remind us of the many decades the AAPOR conference has served as a place for public opinion researchers to come together to learn, share and grow.
On Saturday, May 16, attendees of AAPOR’s 70th Annual Conference honored colleagues for their accomplishments in the industry as well as involvement in AAPOR activities.

AAPOR is lending a hand as our field works to adapt to changing social habits and new technologies. One prominent effort is the Task Force on Reassessing Today's Survey Methods. Launched in August 2014, this task force was asked to provide guidance to the association, and the profession more broadly, on how our methods should evolve to meet the challenges and take advantages of the opportunities coming our way.
