Event Website

Find out with RTI International at the American Association of Public Opinion Research (AAPOR)’s 74th annual conference, being held May 15-19 in Toronto.

We’re turning it up to 21 again in booth #119 and delivering more than two dozen Game Changing presentations during the conference, including sessions on the effectiveness of sponsor logos, whether employees’ mode preference differs by occupation, and can email replace paper invitation for complex surveys.

AAPOR is the leading professional organization for public opinion and survey research, with members in academia, the media, government, non-profit, and private sector industries. Its annual conference is among the largest gatherings of data researchers and survey methodologists in the world.

RTI has been an active member and participant in AAPOR for 60 years, and many of our Game Changing researchers serve leadership roles within AAPOR’s committees. During this year’s conference, Gretchen McHenry and Rachel Caspar will begin their terms on AAPOR’s 2019-2020 Executive Council, as associate secretary-treasurer and associate education chair, respectively.
