American Evaluation Association conference next week

Next week, I'm headed to the annual American Evaluation Association (AEA) conference in Chicago. This year's conference focuses on exemplary evaluation--examples of the best "to inspire and energize evaluation professionals from around the world."

If you don't know about AEA, they are one of the largest professional associations for evaluators, and they share lots of great resources, such as tips of the day. If you become a member, then you have access to webinars, their journal, and additional learning materials.

I'm excited to meet up with old and new colleagues. I get to take a data visualization workshop with one of my favorites, Ann K. Emery. I'm also leading a symposium with City Year colleagues on our journey to measure students' social emotional learning.

Look forward to sharing highlights with you!
