    CESBC Interior Meeting | Evaluation Social

    Everyone with an interest in evaluation / research is welcome to join this open discussion where you’ll have an opportunity to hear what others are doing in the evaluation field.

    During our last discussion in November, we talked about the possibility of reaching out to local not for profits to learn more about the monitoring / evaluation challenges that they’re experiencing – and pull on our collective experience to brainstorm solutions.

    As an initial step in this process, we will use the January 25 session to share examples of our evaluation work and gain a better understanding of our collective expertise and skills as this will help to inform the next steps we take in engaging with local not for profits.

    The discussion will be facilitated by Don Murray, CESBC Interior Coordinator.

    We’ll be using Zoom meeting to host the discussion.

    Date: Monday, January 25, 2020

    Time: 6pm to 7pm

    Where: Zoom - REGISTER HERE

    If you have any questions, please contact Don Murray, Interior/Okanagan Coordinator at BC+InteriorCoord@evaluationcanada.ca.
