Project Profile

Association of Public Data Users (Association Management)

Association of Public Data Users
Start Date: Jan 1970 — End Date: Jan 1970

The Association of Public Data Users (APDU) is a national network that links users, producers, and disseminators of government statistical data. APDU members share a vital concern about the collection, dissemination, preservation, and interpretation of public data.  As an association, APDU is committed to helping data users identify public data that meet their needs, utilizing data in cost-effective and appropriate ways, establishing effective two-way communication between data producers and users, and bringing the perspectives and concerns of public data users to bear on important issues of government information and statistical policy. APDU provides a venue to share news, raise concerns, and advocate on behalf of the interests of public data users. CREC manages the organization and facilitates it board and committee activities.  CREC oversees membership relations and recruitment, produces a weekly news publication, conducts an extensive schedule of webinar training, coordinates the annual conference, supports member advocacy efforts, and manages APDU’s web presence (www.apdu.org).
