2022 APDU Annual Conference 

Date: September 20, 2022
Location: Westin Arlington Gateway (Arlington, VA)

It’s been three years since APDU held an in-person annual conference, and much has changed in public data. Several Federal statistical agencies have new leadership, public data has come under increasing scrutiny, and innovative new research has taken the use of public data in new directions.

Attend the 2022 APDU Annual Conference to learn more about the future of public data – attendees will hear from leaders such as Census Bureau Director Rob Santos. Join us for a networking lunch and happy hour at the end of the day to reconnect with peers.

  • Reconnect with other public data users
  • Influence the future of equity in public data
  • Celebrate (or critique) the state of public data


Included in your conference registration fee there are additional opportunities to learn and engage. We’ve talked collectively for years about the Future of Work – well, over the past two years, we’ve lived it! What does that mean now? With the changing world, what does the future of our communities, data, and working world look like?

APDU is partnering with the Community Indicators Consortium (CIC) and the Projections Managing Partnership (PMP) on content throughout the week. Your registration for the APDU Annual Conference will also provide access to the CIC and PMP conferences in the days following the September 20 event. Registration does not include the PMP Summit on Friday, September 23rd,  that day is by invitation only.

Join APDU, CIC, and the LMI Institute September 20 – 23 to hear from experts and data leaders about current innovations and ideas in the public data, community indicators, and projections data space. To learn more about each event, explore the detailed agendas.
