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

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.

Please join us in New Orleans for the 51st Annual IFD&TC!  Conference registration is now open.

AAPOR Attendance
Many people like to attend both IFD&TC and AAPOR, but if that’s not in your budget for this year, you should be aware that AAPOR and IFD&TC hotels are within walking distance in New Orleans, and that registered IFD&TC attendees are eligible to attend up to 4 free sessions at AAPOR, and also to sign up for AAPOR Short Courses at the AAPOR rate of $125 for each course. IFD&TC will not be accepting payment for AAPOR short courses this year. Payment for attending only a short course can be made directly to AAPOR at their website when signing up for the course. If you plan to attend free sessions at AAPOR, please bring a copy of your IFD&TC registration confirmation to the AAPOR registration desk to check in when you arrive.
Note: Most AAPOR short courses this year take place before the AAPOR conference, so you should plan hotel and travel accordingly.

If you have questions, please contact Kelly Elver, Co-Registrar at kelver@ssc.wisc.edu to learn more.
