- Oregon Program Evaluators Network’s 2013 Conference
March 15, 2013, University Place Hotel and Conference Center, Portland Oregon
Early Bird Registration pricing ends February 22nd. For more information and to register, click here.
(OPEN) is working hard to be more inclusive of student members. This year at the conference we are hoping to have a greater student presence than we have had in the past. We will be focusing on evaluative skills and focusing on blending and borrowing from different industries to inform our work. We would like to invite students to do a 3-5 minute presentation on an emerging trend in evaluation that they are working on, or that they are familiar with through their studies. We are expecting 100-115 attendees from a diverse evaluation background. The OPEN conference is an excellent networking opportunity and a short presentation would provide you some additional connections. We will have a panel of student presenters during a coffee break from 3-3:30p. For more information about the presentations on emerging trends, contact Erin Stack.
