The Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund (CESEF) is happy to announce that it will host a Silent Auction during the upcoming CES National Conference in Halifax. This is one of CESEF’s key fundraisers and the Board of Directors needs your direct support to make it a successful and fun highlight of the Conference! At this point, we need your donations, and eventually, your bids at the Conference!
CESEF is an independent, not-for-profit organization that works to foster the evaluation profession across Canada. CESEF provides scholarships, awards, and educational opportunities to students and emerging evaluators to further their knowledge within the field of program evaluation.
Traditionally, items donated for the silent auction include art, jewelry, craft items, or books. Any new item that you think will garner bids is welcome! Over the years, arts items reflecting the cultural and regional diversity of our country have been particularly popular.
For more information or to donate an item for the Silent Auction, please contact Mariane Arsenault ([email protected]). You can bring the item with you to the conference in Halifax or send it with a colleague.
If you prefer to give a monetary donation, you can do so through the CESEF website at http://cesef.memberlodge.org/donate. Charitable receipts will be issued for income tax purposes for both in-kind and monetary donations.
Look for the silent auction at the conference! It is a great opportunity to network, enjoy a beverage and have fun bidding against your colleagues while acquiring some great auction items.
