Chapter Events

We host several events throughout the year for members and non-members.

Upcoming Events

Discussion on Working Virtually - May 27, 2020 - 12:00pm (MDT) Register Now

The pandemic has meant moving face-to-face communication to the online environment. As organizations adapt to the changes required to survive – and hopefully thrive – evaluation will become more important than ever. Being skilled at providing services online will become an essential part of what we do as evaluators.

The Alberta/NWT chapter of CES invites you to an interactive sharing session about working virtually to support our clients and colleagues. We want to hear your ideas and questions about working online, regardless of whether you are a virtual veteran or a newbie. By harvesting the wisdom of our members through this discussion, let’s strengthen our capacity to provide virtual support.

CES Members and Non-members are welcome.

This session will take place using Zoom. The link will be sent to you in your registration confirmation.

Annual General Meeting 

The Annual General Meeting took place on September 13, 2019. The 2018/2019 Annual Report is available below.

 Annual Reports


Evaluation Cafe

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.
