Welcome to the website of the World Association for Public Opinion Research!

Dear WAPOR members,

Thank you for giving me the honor to serve as President of the Association during these two years. It has been a great experience. The Council members reported at the business meeting during the annual conference in Nice, that WAPOR is in very good shape. This is very encouraging, as we continue promoting the goals established by our constitution, and as we take further steps assisting public opinion research in different regions of the world.

As President, I enjoyed and learned a lot from the multiple activities of the WAPOR community, and from our collaboration with AAPOR and ESOMAR. I am very grateful to the WAPOR Council members and to our Executive Coordinator for all their support, time, and commitment.

I also deeply felt the sad moments of loss. Most recently, Hans Zetterberg, a Past President of WAPOR, passed away on November 28th, at the age of 87.

As the year comes to an end, let me share with you that Mike Traugott has agreed to re-join Council next year, this time as Secretary Treasurer. As you all know, Claire Durand is leaving that position, as she was elected Vice President and President Elect in the last elections. I wish them and our incoming President, Patricia Moy, the best of all experiences in leading WAPOR. I look forward to support them in my role as Past President.

I wish all of you and your families a happy holiday season! Please mark your 2015 calendars with our activities, including the regional conference in Doha (March) and our annual conference in Buenos Aires (June).

Thank you very much!

Alejandro Moreno
President, WAPOR
