Favorite thing(s) about belonging to AAPOR and DC-AAPOR:

AAPOR and DC-AAPOR introduced me to fellow researchers whose ideas engage and inspire me. My participation in DC-AAPOR has not only expanded my view and understanding of survey research, but it has also introduced me to peers and mentors who over the years have become some of my closest friends. The DC-AAPOR community allows us to take off our work hats, set our titles aside, and think beyond our desk – even if for just a moment. I have always felt safe sharing new ideas w/in this group, and as program chair I enjoyed inviting others to share theirs with us – I hope to continue promoting the discussion of ideas locally while serving as president of DC-AAPOR.
