    CESBC Workshop | Tips for Writing an Abstract

    Join the CESBC Conference Planning Team and Credentialed Evaluator Penny Cooper as she facilitates a discussion and Q & A about how to write a strong abstract for the topic and presentation style of choice.

    As we open up the Call for Abstracts for the 2024 CESBC Evaluation Conference ‘Evolving Our Evaluation Practice for Shared Growth’, we want to ensure that submitting an abstract and presenting at the conference is accessible for folks who may have never submitted an abstract before, or are looking to refresh or improve their abstract writing skills.

    Our evening session will cover:

    • The different presentation styles: What are they, and which one is best for your topic?

    • The submission process: Tips for choosing a conference stream, and writing an engaging abstract that clearly outlines your presentation.

    • Assessment criteria: Reviewing your submission to ensure you have met all of the necessary criteria. 

    • General Q&A: Have a specific question? We are here to help answer it. 

    We’ll be using Zoom to host the discussion.

    Date: Monday, June 17th, 2024

    Overview

    CESBC is excited to announce our 2024 annual one-day conference. The conference is an opportunity to share experiences from our work, bring forward ideas, and present questions and challenges for discussion with the BC evaluation community.

    This year's conference invites participants to examine how we can evolve our evaluation practice to grow together and better support the individuals and communities we work with, as well as create a more sustainable future. 

    The Conference Organizers

    The conference is brought to you by the members and volunteers of the BC chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society. CESBC is a chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES), the professional organization for evaluation professionals, students, academics and users of evaluation (such as managers, program staff and planners). CESBC is a member funded voluntary organization. We work to provide the evaluation community in British Columbia with learning opportunities, networking and resources. We are happy to take advice and organize events that the community suggests.

    Interested in volunteering?

    The conference would not be possible every year without the support of our wonderful volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering with this year’s conference, please contact CESBC.Conference@gmail.com. There will be opportunities over the Spring/Summer, closer to October, and on the day of the event.
