Project management is one of the drafted competencies proposed by the AEA Task Force, though it is rarely a skill that has been formally taught to practicing evaluators. Please join the Minnesota Evaluation Association’s Board members (Melissa Chapman Haynes, President-Elect and Veronica Deenanath, Treasurer) for an event focused on exploring project management for evaluators. This will be a semi-structured event that will involve some formal sharing and some time to network and socialize. Attendees can expect to leave with some concrete tools, tips, and tricks for incorporating project management techniques to their practice.
