Chemonics convenes its monitoring, evaluation, and learning experts for Evaluation 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio from October 29 through November 3.


Chemonics is preparing to join monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) experts from around the world at the American Evaluation Association’s upcoming Evaluation 2018 conference. This year’s conference, which features the theme “Speaking Truth to Power,” will include more than 40 professional development workshops, feature 700 evaluation presenters, and reach a community of more than 3,000 evaluators.

As part of this impressive group, we look forward to sharing practical tools for putting theories of change into practice and highlighting the approaches we’ve taken to cultivate an organizational culture that embraces data. We’re also excited to team with Arizona State University to introduce our experience applying a cultural consensus model to international development projects.

We believe quality data can drive meaningful change! Check out the sessions and posters listed below to chat with our MEL experts and learn more.
