We are pleased to announce the rejuvenation of the New England Chapter of AAPOR (NEAAPOR)! As our incorporation process nears completion, NEAAPOR is excited to start down the path of becoming a valuable part of the survey research community both locally and nationally. With a host of leading researchers working across many sectors and in many settings, we are looking forward to building NEAAPOR into a strong and vibrant chapter.
For the first year, NEAAPOR will focus on three main goals:
- Organize a series of compelling workshops, lectures and panel discussions so that we can learn together and network with our fellow researchers in the area.
- Grow our membership by reaching out to active AAPOR members who live in our area but are not yet current NEAAPOR members – as well as other non-AAPOR researchers.
- Build a sustainable NEAAPOR infrastructure – contact lists, website, social media presence, sound financials, and so on – to put the chapter on solid footing for years to come.
New England covers a big region, so NEAAPOR will work to bring events to a city near you rather than holding all of them in one or two locations. In terms of topics, we also have a vast range of expertise represented in our membership, and could access top-level researchers on both substantive and methodological subjects of interest. So think creatively about topics and formats — and please let us know what you think.
