The deadline is coming up December 14th for proposals to present at the Canadian Evaluation Society conference in Halifax, Canada. We welcome proposals on topics related to the conference theme. www.c2019evaluationcanada.ca/
The conference theme is Bridges:
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.
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.
