The 2016 AGM was held virtually on September 30. Plans for the 2017 AGM will be announced in the summer.

Evaluation Cafe is a chapter-supported networking and learning forum. Members and non-members alike meet to discuss evaluation in a casual, conversational setting. The first Evaluation Cafe was held in Edmonton in April, 2014, and several other events have since been held in Edmonton and Calgary.

The Naked Truth: The State of Evaluation in Alberta, April 10, 2015
The Alberta & NWT Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society and its partners were pleased to host this one day evaluation forum. The forum was designed by the Chapter to engage participants in provocative discussions and the sharing of information about:
- What is happening in evaluation in Alberta and what evaluators are working on
- The value of evaluation from the perspective of evaluators and those who use evaluations
- An action plan for advancing the profession of evaluation in the province
The objective of the forum was to provide a gathering place for evaluators to connect with each other and also with the users of evaluation. Presenters Included Gail Barrington, Benoit Gauthier, Rebecca Mellett, Crystal Corrigan and Cheryl Poth.
