On Our Way TO AEA #Eval15!

November 09, 2015

The American Evaluation Association’s 29th Annual Conference is taking place this week (November 9-14) in Chicago, Illinois. As part of the larger celebration of 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation, this year's conference will focus on Exemplary Evaluations in a Multicultural World: Learning from Evaluation’s Successes Across the Globe. Evaluators, evaluation scholars, students, and evaluation users from around the world are invited to assemble, share, and learn from the successes of the international discipline and practice of evaluation.

EnCompass is honored to be leading a number of presentations and discussions at this year’s conference- some of which have already begun! In preparation for their session on Wednesday, Lynne Franco (our Vice President of Technical Assistance and Evaluation) and Jonathan Jones of CAMRIS International wrote a blog post for AEA365 on supercharging your focus groups.
