This year’s theme, Paths to the Future of Evaluation: Contribution, Leadership, and Renewal, encourages you to consider how to stay relevant to the key issues of our society, increase our society’s capacity to understand looming issues and tradeoffs, and enable our communities to have informed conversations about the way forward.
AEA President Tessie Catsambas invites you to engage and discuss our rich experience and the contributions of evaluation, our strategies for leadership, and our actions for renewalon the following four areas:
- Addressing the key issues our society faces
- Applying and innovating methods and practices to evaluate in the context of important societal challenges
- Leaving no one behind
- Leading through evaluation
Building the future of the evaluation practice begins at Evaluation 2019 – by 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.
