​April is always an exciting time as it means the AAPOR annual conference is just around the corner. Of course, the conference also signifies the end of our Council term. The remarkable individuals that constitute the 2021-22 Executive Council have achieved something tremendous for our organization – a transition to self-management. Unlike many initiatives and undertakings that are outward-facing, AAPOR’s transition happened mostly behind the scenes. More importantly, it involved countless hours and moving parts – hiring personnel, setting up an office, and transferring everything from funds and website domains to processes and institutional knowledge. This transition was no small feat and is certainly something of which this Council, AAPOR’s 320 volunteers, and new incredible staff should be proud.
