    CESBC Lower Mainland Social Meet-Up

    We are excited to announce our first Social Event for the year 2024 in Vancouver. This will be a casual social event to meet one another, expand your network, and exchange ideas around the evaluation topics.

    If you’re eager to chat with other evaluators and expand your network, are experienced or brand new to the sector, or just plain interested, we look forward to seeing you there. This event is open to all evaluation folks, emerging and otherwise, so drop in and say hi, stay for a coffee and baked goods.

    This is a casual gathering to share ideas and for us to hear your thoughts about what future events we should plan as well.

    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.

    Cancellation Policy: 50% refund one month before event. After that Substitute name only.

    Pre-Conference Workshop will be announced in due course.

    Annual General Meeting registration will occur in due course.

    For all enquiries please email: CESBC.Conference@gmail.com
