You may have heard that the CESBCY Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC on Friday, November 20, 2015. This year’s focus is on evaluations of non-profit initiatives across the province. Its theme “Collaboration, Contribution and Collective Impact” is a tribute to the contributions of evaluation to gathering and analyzing data, communicating and sharing learning, and engaging in practices that shift thinking to support system-wide improvement. 

Students are strongly being encouraged to participate in the conference and there are a variety of ways you can do so:

1.          Student presentations
Evaluation students from across the region will be presenting on projects relating to the theme of the conference.

2.      Buddy program
Interested students can be paired up with a seasoned evaluator “buddy” to help students feel more comfortable and well-oriented at the conference and gain a better understanding of evaluation practice by exchanging with an experienced peer.
