The Association of Public Data Users Conference (APDU) will be holding its annual conference on July 9-10 in Arlington, VA. I think members of this list will find the topics and speakers of interest and will appreciate the opportunity to meet with data producers and fellow data users. You can find the latest agenda linked here: http://apdu.org/events/conference/2019-annual-conference/
The most up to date line up of speakers includes the heads of the Census Bureau, BEA and BLS each talking about the challenges ahead for their respective programs. There will be a plenaries on the use of algorithms and public data as well as a discussion of the implications of the Census Bureau's new data security initiatives. There are also a range of breakout sessions, including a talk about the new CTPP.
Following the conference APDU is sponsoring an "Advanced Data Visualization Techniques in Tableau" training that might also be of interest. You can learn about the training here: http://apdu.org/2019/03/25/data-visualization-training/.

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
We invite you to submit a proposal to present at the 2019 Annual Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Annual Partnership Workshop. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the LED Partnership. The LED Partnership is a collaborative partnership between state data agencies and the Census Bureau to leverage existing data in the development of new sources of economic and demographic information for policy makers and data users. The workshop provides professional development and networking for Labor Market Information (LMI) directors, data analysts and data providers at state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and other data users. The focus of presentations at the workshop is useful and new applications of new data made possible through the LED State/Federal partnership, the Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI) or the QWI Explorer, the Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) Origin-Destination Employee Statistics (LODES) or the OnTheMap or OnTheMap for Emergency Management, the Job-to-Job Flows (J2J) or J2J Explorer, and the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO).
Presentations selected for the workshop will be featured on plenary panels or in targeted breakout sessions during this popular learning event. Topics could be from a wide variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to: workforce development, economic development, transportation planning, and emergency management. We are particularly interested in examples from our state partners and strongly encourage LMI shops to apply.
