QUALPOR is intended for any AAPOR member who is managing, conducting, or has an interest in qualitative research methods. The purpose of this group is to advance the discipline of qualitative research within AAPOR by offering a forum in which AAPOR members can share best practices, exchange resources, and discuss new approaches to qualitative research design as well as ways to improve on the integrity of these designs along with the quality and usefulness of the outcomes.
QUALPOR hopes to achieve these goals by:
- Providing an open environment that encourages a free exchange of ideas;
- Providing numerous networking opportunities;
- Encouraging QUALPOR members’ involvement in the AAPOR conference and webinar series; and,
- Responding to the individual and collective needs of its members.
