Winners of Demographic Information Update Drawing


One of APPAM’s initiatives is to expand efforts to create a more diverse membership. To that end, we are collecting demographic information from our members and conference submitters to better understand the diversity of the APPAM universe.

To sweeten the pot, we promised that 10 randomly selected members would each win a $50 Amazon gift card. Well, we drew the names out of a digital hat randomly, and we have our winners! Even if you didn't win, we thank you for providing your information
