Symposium - All In Good Measure: Building Your Toolkit To Evaluate Capacity, Performance And Impact

NeighborWorks America

Are you confused by all of the options available to evaluate your work?

Do you wish there was a common framework for the types and uses of evaluation to be shared by all community development stakeholders?

Join us for All in Good Measure: Building Your Toolkit to Evaluate Capacity, Performance and Impact on June 28 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown in Kansas City, Missouri.

This one-day symposium, part of the NeighborWorks Training Institute in Kansas City (June 26-30), will be a highly interactive, enlightening opportunity to learn about the range of evaluation options available for funders, practitioners, intermediaries and other community development stakeholders.

Participants will explore and contribute to a one-of-a-kind map, unveiled publicly for the first time at this event, which graphically depicts the many different evaluation approaches and tools available.

Peers will share their stories of obstacles and successes with different methods, and participants will take away a smaller version of the map and the accompanying legend for future reference.

The symposium begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. The fee is $195 and includes continental breakfast, a luncheon, all materials, and the NeighborWorks Training Institute networking reception that evening. Pre-event registration deadline is June 5.
