At this year’s APDU annual conference, you have a unique opportunity to directly influence how federal statistics are gathered, produced, and shared. Learn from experts. Engage with leaders. Collaborate with peers to make a difference. Join us on September 13-14 in Alexandria, VA.

Featured speakers include: Katherine Wallman, Chief Statistician for OMB; John Thompson, Director of the Census Bureau; Erica Groshen, Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics; Bill Frey, author of the Diversity Explosion.

At APDU’s annual conference, you get to interact on a personal basis with public data agency decision makers, share your experiences, and influence their strategies for improving available data, designing new data products, and shaping how information is shared.

Come see for yourself why APDU’s conference has grown over 40% over the last three years! We are where the federal statistical system meets Open Data and Big Data. APDU is where data innovation collides to create new tools for data scientists in the public and private sector and new dissemination strategies for public data users.

Agenda

Picture this: You just finished a data-intensive report and it has no tables or narrative. That has about as much chance of moving forward as a driverless car, right? Well, it’s a new day, and people want compelling stories delivered in interesting ways. Long reports are being replaced with infographics that use images, pictures, charts, and graphs to share information quickly and efficiently.

In two days, you can learn key concepts about data visualization, and take home a few easy tips using readily available software—Excel and Tableau. Join us and become a data viz expert!
