The American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) is thrilled to announce that its 79th Annual Conference will be held in person at the Hilton Atlanta on Wednesday, May 15 through Friday, May 17, 2023. Take advantage of this opportunity to participate in the premier forum for the exchange of advances in public opinion and survey research.
The Conference allows attendees to network with colleagues, learn the latest updates and trends in the field, and make new connections. The meeting highlights innovative research and includes short courses and discussion forums for attendees of diverse disciplines from around the world.
Over the past several years, AAPOR has celebrated coming together, been challenged with disrupting public opinion research in the pursuit of equity and inclusion and focused on building collaborative partnerships and working together. In 2024, we will build on these themes to focus on impacting communities through the engaged scholarship work done by public opinion and survey research methods scholars and practitioners.
Public opinion and survey research impacts our communities in a variety of important ways. For example, this research plays an important role in democracy and governance by measuring the opinions and concerns of all members of communities. It is also a key source of information for developing and evaluating policies at all levels of government in multiple domains, including health, the environment, transportation, finance, disaster preparedness, social services, justice, and others. Finally, survey and public opinion research provides important data about disparities and inequity that can be used to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. For the 2024 conference theme, we will be spotlighting the many ways that public opinion and survey research is having an impact on communities.
To this end, AAPOR members will be encouraged to submit abstracts that feature all the ways that surveys and public opinion research impact communities. Abstracts should include a (brief) description of the impact of the work in addition to relevant information about the research.
We look forward to this opportunity to learn about how the important work being done by AAPOR members impacts communities and celebrate the role of engaged scholarship.
