JPAM Closer Look Author Interview: Christian Gregory and Travis Smith on Salience, Food Security, and SNAP Receipt

Household food insecurity status in the United States is ascertained by a battery of closed-ended questions. The authors, Christian A. Gregory and Travis A.

Spring Conference Is Four Days Away

April 8, 2014 09:00 AM

APPAM's Spring Conference is a few days away, just as spring makes a hearty debut in the Washington, DC area. The conference is this Saturday, April 12 at the University Club. Featured is a mix of panel sessions and roundtables for students, educators, and practitioners to choose from, such as Policy Analysis at the Undergraduate Level, Strategies for Teaching Policy Analysis, How Media Is Changing the Case Method, and Teaching Data Competency. Overall, APPAM is offering twelve great sessions over the course of the day; both breakfast and lunch are included with pre-registration. A full agenda can be found here.

Registration ends today, so don't wait until the last minute! (Some on-site registration can be done by contacting Tristanne Staudt.)

In addition to the range of sessions provided, there will be two plenary sessions of particular interest to students. These will also be broadcast as webinars; if you're unable to make the conference in-person, members can attend these sessions online at no cost:
