The 2018-19 Council year is off and running! Council met in June with a very proactive agenda. One area we are focusing on in particular riffs off of Past President Tim Johnson’s Presidential Address and the ongoing work of the Committee on Attacks on Surveys.
by Courtney Kennedy, Conference Chair
Thanks to everyone for making the 73rd Annual Conference a huge success! The conference featured a record number of sessions (112) and near-record number of attendees (over 1,200). Our indefatigable Denver conference chair, Trent Buskirk, made a number of innovations to the program – all with an eye toward helping members update their skills for this new era of survey research and data analytics. Denver attendees saw the first ever Public Opinion Research Training and Learning (PORTAL) sessions, AAPOR’s Got Talent, multi-vendor demonstration sessions, and a new conference app.
