Hi I am Kelly Laurie and I am the Event Services Manager for AEA.

Evaluation 2018 is upon us! Our registration launch is right around the corner and the AEA team is anxious to go LIVE! Don’t let our July registration opening time frame fool you – conference planning starts months and months in advance and we’ve been diligently working away.

Generally, we’ve already started planning the future year conference while the current year program is still yet to be completed. We take lessons learned, new ideas, and survey responses to implement improvements into future year programming with the goal to make the AEA Annual Conference better year after year.

One new offering in 2018, based upon feedback and comments, is childcare. A lot of research and thought has gone behind this decision and we are happy to be able to offer this new initiative. The team is also very excited to bring Evaluation 2018 to Cleveland – it’s a great city with a lot to offer and we hope you are all looking forward experiencing the city as we are!
