THE 2017 CONFERENCE THEME

Evaluation Capital

While hinting at the national capital location, the 2017 conference theme Evaluation Capital captures two important but often neglected ideas in evaluation.

Firstly, evaluation is a durable asset for sound governance. That is, longevity and permanence should be built into our evaluation systems because societies with more evaluation capital are better off than those with less. The second idea concerns the inherently political nature of evaluation, and that evaluation commissioners and practitioners must be sensitive to the effect of politics when making their evaluative choices.

REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN!

HOST CITY AND VENUES

See you in Canberra
Canberra, situated inland from Australia's southeast coast, is surrounded by forest, farmland and nature reserves – thus its nickname, the "Bush Capital”. The city's focal point is Lake Burley Griffin, filled with sailboats and kayaks. On the lakeshore is the strikingly modern Parliament House, as well as a vast collection of museums, including the National Gallery, known for its indigenous art collections.
Conference support for emerging Indigenous evaluators

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!
The AES is pleased to invite applications from emerging Indigenous evaluators from across the Australasian and Pacific region for support to participate in the AES Annual International Conference. These grants support Indigenous evaluators to participate in strengthening the knowledge base of the evaluation sector and to further develop their own capacities in evaluation with Indigenous people and communities. The grants are designed to support attendance and contribution to the AES conference.

SUPPORT THE PROGRAM
Upon registration, each delegate will have the opportunity to choose a ticket extra as a donation to support the participation of Emerging Indigenous Evaluators in the conference. There are additional ways you can support the program.
