Members of EnCompass’ evaluation team are gearing up for the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Evaluation 2019 conference, occurring November 11–16. This year’s conference holds special significance for us, as our CEO/CFO, Tessie Catsambas, is also the current AEA President. She will be passing the gavel to the AEA president elect during this year’s conference.
The theme of Evaluation 2019 is Paths to the Future of Evaluation: “assessing and appreciating the past contributions evaluation has made to society, considering the issues where evaluators can bring leadership, and looking ahead toward the renewal of the profession.” This year, a Virtual Conference will give attendees access to the plenary sessions via livestream. Ms. Catsambas’ November 13 presentation will be livestreamed for those who have registered for the virtual conference at this link.
