The 42nd Annual EERS Annual Conference – May 5-7, 2019
Tweet the 2019 Conference! #EERS19
The Eastern Evaluation Research Society (EERS) will return to its historical home at the Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Galloway, New Jersey, May 5-7, 2019 (Sunday evening through midday Tuesday). The theme of this year’s gathering is Adapt! Evaluators in a Changing World.
As the world changes, the practice of program evaluation becomes increasingly complex. The interdisciplinary nature of the evaluation field is continually challenged by the need to develop new methods for studying complex adaptive systems, to identify new strategies for bridging different perspectives about truth and the use of information, and in ultimately translating the knowledge gained from evaluation into meaningful action. While our field has grown in recent decades, so too have related disciplines that build evidence and produce knowledge for society. Within this context, evaluators maintain a clear purpose and process to remain relevant and credible in an ever-changing and evolving world. Join EERS in 2019 as we discuss how the evaluation profession continues to adapt.
As you reflect on content to present, consider the following topics:
EERS has a long history of providing popular evaluation practitioner workshops immediately prior to the formal opening of the annual conference. Links to descriptions of pre-conference workshops will be provided here as the program is finalized.
Conference materials will be uploaded and linked-to here as they become available.
EERS takes pride in encouraging the next generation of evaluators by supporting students whose presentation proposals are accepted, with stipends and free or subsidized meal and conference registration fees that total more than $4000 annually. You can make tax-deductible donations securely through PayPal or with a credit card, with proceeds going to support costs for student participants.
