Message from the Co-Chairs

The 2024 Conference is an opportunity to come together to renew, where ideas will flow and contribute to collective progress (confluence).

Welcome to the 2024 National Conference, where we will explore the theme of "Renewal and Confluence: Navigating the Future of Evaluation." This theme invites us to reflect on how evaluation can adapt and evolve in a changing world while embracing diverse perspectives and approaches.

We will examine how evaluation can renew itself by learning from the past, innovating in the present, and anticipating the future. We will also consider how evaluation can foster confluence, or the coming together of ideas, disciplines, and people, to create new possibilities and solutions. 

We hope that this conference will inspire you to renew your passion for evaluation, connect with other evaluators, and discover new ways of thinking and doing evaluation. 

This year’s conference is happening in Fredericton, the capital city of New Brunswick, on the traditional and unceded territory of the Wolastoqey, Mi’kmaq (L’nuk), and Peskotomukatiyik Peoples. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
