We host several events throughout the year for members and non-members.
Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting took place on September 13, 2019. The 2018/2019 Annual Report is available below.
Evaluation cafe is a chapter-supported networking and learning forum for evaluators in Alberta and Northwest Territories. Members and non-members with similar interests meet to share their passion for the profession, aspirations for future development broadly or around a specific topic in a casual, conversational setting. Typically, evaluation cafes are held in two major cities – Edmonton and Calgary. Members expressed their interests in hosting cafes in other cities and rural areas at the 2018 AGM. In line with this, the CES AB/NWT Board is pleased to extend eval cafes beyond Edmonton and Calgary and encourages non-board members to host cafes within their respective professional community to strengthen connectivity among evaluators.
If you are interested in organizing a cafe, please contact CES AB/NWT at [email protected] for further details and obtaining a confirmation on the budget.
Annual Christmas Luncheons
Annual Christmas Luncheons are usually held in December or January in both Edmonton and Calgary.
Annual National Conference
Each year, the Canadian Evaluation Society presents a National Conference. The 2017 conference was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the 2018 conference took place in Calgary. Further details can be found here.
