My name is Susan Kistler, aea365’s usual Saturday contributor and guest weekday post provider this week. Today, I’m keeping it short and sweet with three tips about the upcoming AEA conference.
Hot Tip – Register Now: If you are attending the American Evaluation Association Annual Conference next month in Minneapolis, and have not yet done so, go register today. This time next week, the registration rates will go up. The last day to register at the early bird rates is Thursday, September 20. Don’t procrastinate. Register via the conference website here.
Hot Tip – Sign Up for Workshops Now: AEA’s pre-conference workshops are taught by some of the best facilitators in the field and the topics will fill your evaluation toolbox. How to Prepare an Evaluation Dissertation Proposal? Check. Developing Cultural Competency? Check. Logic Modeling? Check. An Introduction to GIS for Evaluators? Check. There are over 40 from which to choose. Peruse them all here and then register right on the regular conference registration form.
Hot Tip: One of the workshops has already filled and a number of the other ones have only a couple of slots left. We don’t keep waiting lists and you will be closed out if a session fills. And the early bird workshop registration rates will end after next Thursday, just like the early bird conference rates.
The reality is that the more people who register early, the better we are able to plan for things like food and beverage consumption so as to limit waste. Limiting waste contains costs and is more environmentally friendly. Your help in these efforts is appreciated, and is rewarded with early bird registration rates.
