2016 marks the American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) 30th Annual Conference, which will be held on October 24-29 in Atlanta, Georgia. Through this year’s conference theme, “Evaluation + Design”, participants will consider the integration of design and evaluation in three areas: program design, evaluation design, and information design.
