From Strategic Plan to an Evaluation plan: Working with Decatur Cooperative Ministry
November 27th, 5:30 – 7 pm
For over a decade, AaEA volunteers have helped provide evaluation services to Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM). Recently DCM has completed its next 5 year strategic plan. Part of this plan involves establishing a comprehensive evaluation plan. On November 27th, the professional development working group would like to start the process of developing this plan. To this end, we’d like to invite interested members to help us review the new strategic plan and identify ways to revise the existing logic model, and begin to prioritize areas for evaluation. We expect this meeting to be highly interactive and will generate much discussion about planning and evaluation processes. Please contact Maureen Wilce at mwilce at earthlink.net or Sarah Gill at sarahgill97 at msn.com for location information. And for more information about AaEA’s role with DCM, please see Salvatore P.
