Training and Professional Development

    AEA is committed both to providing outstanding professional development for evaluators as well as to helping evaluators connect with other professional development opportunities.

    Evaluation 2014: We invite all who are involved in the field of evaluation to share your best work in evaluation theory or practice at Evaluation 2014, the annual conference of the American Evaluation Association (AEA).

    The conference is divided into Topical Strands that examine the field from the vantage point of a particular methodology, context, or issue, as well as the Presidential Strand highlighting this year’s Presidential Theme of Visionary Evaluation for a Sustainable, Equitable Future. Presentations may explore the Presidential Theme (please see below) or any aspect of the range of evaluation theory, practice, management, or consulting.

    We anticipate that more than 3,000 colleagues will gather for a week of learning, collaboration, and connection, and hope that you will be among those in attendance.Learn more
