PAPOR Membership

PAPOR serves to support public opinion researchers in the western region of the US and Canada, including areas west of the Rocky Mountains as well as Alaska and Hawaii, but welcomes members from across the US and Canada. Although PAPOR is the local chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), membership in AAPOR is not required to join PAPOR.

Benefits of Membership

Being a member of PAPOR has many benefits:

  • Networking opportunities with local colleagues
  • A local venue for staying connected to the field
  • A chance to support public opinion research
  • Quarterly newsletters and updates about events and opportunities in our region


Annual membership is $20 for regular members and $12 for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. There are three easy ways to become a member:

  1. Join or Renew your Membership online
  2. Join or renew by paying the chapter dues when you join or renew your national AAPOR membership
  3. Join or renew when registering for the Annual Conference.  Non-members receive a special, one-time discount rate of $30 for membership the year of the conference as well as the subsequent year.
