Canadian Evaluation Society conference will be held in Halifax from May 26-29, 2019. There are two important dates: December 14, 2018 is the deadline for submitting a presentation proposal, and the conference itself takes place
from May 26-29, 2019.
Conference Theme: Bridges
Subtheme 1: Bridges that connect
This sub-theme invites conversations about the connections built, sustained, or strengthened through evaluation and is an opportunity to share experiences about building and traveling bridges to overcome obstacles to evaluation. Evaluators also build bridges to strengthen stakeholder relationships and to help programs reach their goals efficiently and effectively.
Subtheme 2: Sustaining and using bridges
Subtheme 3: Stories from the ship’s bridge
A bridge can be ‘the elevated platform from which the captain steers a ship’. From the bridge the captain has a broad view of the surrounding environment and access to navigational tools to guide the ship safely on its journey. This subtheme conjures notions of complex system evaluation and is an opportunity for delegates to share their experiences from the ship’s bridge as evaluative leaders guiding the way through complex systems in stormy weather and fair skies.
