The CESBC 2018 Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC, on Friday, November 30. This conference is about opening up our evaluation toolboxes and sharing what we know and what we’ve learned. Every attendee should come away from the conference with something new to use in your work. This is an opportunity to share your most trusted tools, expand your toolbox, and build new connections.
