New from AAPOR: Survey Practice and a Polling Webinar

From my colleagues at the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) come two new projects of interest:

AAPOR is again teaming up with The Poynter Institute's News University to sponsor a "webinar" on Understanding and interpreting Polls in the 2008 Election.  The live webcast, which will be held on Thursday, September 18 at 2 p.m. Eastern time, will feature live audio and a slideshow and will allow participants to post questions.  Access to the live or archived version will cost $24.95.  Details are available here.

AAPOR also just launched Survey Practice, a new online publication that has been in the works for two years (including my stint as AAPOR's communications chair).  The publication aims to be a forum for pollsters and survey researchers to share "share advances in practical survey methods, current information on conditions affecting survey research, and interesting features about surveys and people who work in survey research."  Links to articles in the first issue is are available here.
