2020 CESBC Conference


Call for Volunteers

2018 Conference Report Link

January 24, 2020 | Vancouver, BC

Back by popular demand! This year’s conference will continue with a focus on equipping participants with practical tools that they can apply to their evaluation practice. This year we’re also digging a little deeper into the toolbox to add a focus on the tacit knowledge that informs our practice. The conference will include three themes:

  • Innovation: focusing on new tools especially those that we can learn from other sectors or disciplines
  • Inspiration: focusing on new methods that enhance the meaning that we draw from our work and keep us energized
  • Insight: focusing on the lessons that we’ve learned, especially those learned through failure
