The Eastern Evaluation Research Society (EERS) is the oldest professional society for program evaluators in the United States. Founded in 1978, EERS remains a vibrant contributor to program evaluation practice and theory. A fully-fledged affiliate of the American Evaluation Association (AEA), the purpose of EERS is to promote key goals of the profession in our region.
- Growth of the evaluation profession through information sharing and educational activities
- Use of innovative and appropriate evaluation methodologies
- High quality evaluation through fostering research, developing and improving professional competencies, and disseminating and utilizing results.
In this capacity EERS sponsors an annual conference for evaluation professionals, and operates this website to provide information about that conference and other activities of interest to evaluators.

Any individual interested in the purposes of EERS is welcome to participate, by proposing a conference presentation, posting (or searching among) professional evaluation positions, or getting involved in the organization and leadership of the society.
