2012 EERS Conference

The Eastern Evaluation Research Society (EERS), a local affiliate of the American Evaluation Association, has been serving evaluators in the northeast region for over thirty years. EERS is very pleased to announce the 35th Annual Conference to be held at the Seaview Resort and Spa in Absecon, New Jersey on April 29-May 1, 2012. The conference theme for this year is Evaluation in a Complex World: Balancing Theory and Practice.

Our annual conference is designed to (a) provide a forum for learning, networking, and sharing expertise in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, (b) provide opportunities for learning new skills at multiple levels, (c) nurture new evaluators and inspire seasoned evaluators, and (d) facilitate cross displinary discussions about evaluation in both formal and informal contexts. The conference provides a range of sessions that promote interaction and exchange of ideas, as well as opportunities for skill-building, rather than simply a delivery of presentations by speakers.

In keeping up with our reputation of offering a high-quality conference that challenges participants with new ideas and provides opportunities to develop new skills, we have secured a great group of keynote speakers and workshops.

Plenary Speakers:
