Apply Now! AaEA Nonprofit Professional Scholarship
The Atlanta-area Evaluation Association is offering scholarships for up to three nonprofit professionals to attend the 2016 American Evaluation Association Conference in Atlanta, GA, October 24–29.
AEA Conference 2016: “Evaluation + Design”
“Everything we evaluate is designed. Every evaluation we conduct is designed. Every report, graph, or figure we present is designed. In our profession, design and evaluation are woven together to support the same purpose—making the world a better place. This is the inspiration for the 2016 theme: Evaluation + Design. In 2016, we will be diving into this concept looking specifically at three areas—program design, evaluation design, and information design” —AEA President, John Gargani.
