We know you can’t travel to every conference, so DC-AAPOR and WSS are teaming up once again to bring you a sample of exemplary presentations (both talks and posters) taking place at this year’s national and international conferences. At the 2017 Summer Conference Preview/Review, you will get the opportunity to share your work, hear what others are doing, and connect with colleagues.

The draft program is available here: http://www.washstat.org/seminars/2017/2017_Summer_Conference_Program.pdf.

Session topics will include:

  • The Use of Internet and Non-Probability Panels
  • Advancements in Weighting Adjustment
  • Evaluation of Survey and Census Issues through Pretesting
  • Incorporation of Mobile Technology into Data Collections
  • Polling, Elections, and Political Attitudes

After the conference we’ll have a happy hour at the 201 Bar at 201 Massachusetts Ave NE. Conference registration includes food and drink at the happy hour.

Registration ends 7/20 so that we can get the attendee list to BLS. No on-site registration will be available.

Please bring a government-issued picture ID with you on the day of the conference to gain admission to the conference venue.

Thank you to our gold conference sponsors RTI International, Westat, and IMPAQ International, and our silver sponsors, Gallup and American Institutes for Research (AIR)!
