Welcome to the International Field Directors and Technologies
Conference (IFD&TC) website!

The IFD&TC would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2015 conference in May for helping to make this year’s conference a great success! Thanks to all who so generously donated their time to present, facilitate, and of course attend, the IFD&TC continues to be a valuable resource for professional development and networking in survey research.

The IFD&TC provides a unique forum for government, academic institutions and not-for-profit agencies to informally communicate with each other. Attendees include field directors, field technicians and survey managers. There are no membership dues and the only activity is our annual conference each May. The conference sessions are informal and focus on innovations, work in progress or recently completed work. Highlights include exchanges of information, practices and opinions. Finished papers ready for publication or distribution in official formal proceedings are not required. Prior to this year’s conference, the IFD&TC website underwent a major renovation. Please click to learn more about the site redesign.

You can review the full 2015 program by clicking here, or by navigating to the Past Conferences->2015 menu item.

The 2016 conference will be our 50th Anniversary! We will be heading to Austin, Texas, and hope to see you all there.
