    Meet, Dine & Connect with fellow evaluators for Thanksgiving Dinner!

    In 1984, Lee Cronbach and associates wrote that the sine qua non for improving the evaluation enterprise was building a stronger evaluation profession. The advice about the evaluation enterprise's central ingredient is just as relevant today as it was more than 30 years ago.  

    Please join the Yoder-Yamashita’s for an evening Thanksgiving feast, as part of the Sine Qua Non Dinner Series.  Come share good food, drink, warm cheer and talk about data and evaluation.  Bring a beverage to share and warm slippers or socks to lounge around the fireplace

    Roundtable:  Contributions of Cost-Effectiveness Studies to Evidence-Based Policymaking

    Washington Evaluators and the Bipartisan Policy Center's Evidence-Based Policymaking Initiative are pleased to co-sponsor a roundtable discussion about the contributions of cost-effectiveness studies to informing policy decisions in government.  This panel discussion will explore approaches to conducting cost-effectiveness studies, their value and use in government decisions, and practical steps for improving their utility for decision-makers. The distinguished panelists have collectively experienced the generation and use of cost-effectiveness studies from a variety of academic, non-governmental, and governmental positions.  We invite you to join us on Tuesday, December 5th at 2 PM for a lively discussion of the implications of cost-effectiveness research on government decision making.      

    The panel discussion will be introduced and chaired by Nick Hart, Director of BPC's Evidence-Based Policymaking Initiative and the 2017 Washington Evaluators President.  

    Panelists:

    • Harry Hatry, Distinguished Fellow and Director of the Urban Institute's Public Management Program
    • George Julnes, Professor in the University of Baltimore's School of Public and International Affairs 
    • Sandy Davis, Senior Advisor to BPC's Evidence-Based Policymaking Initiative

    Meet, Dine & Connect with fellow evaluators!

    In 1984, Lee Cronbach and associates wrote that the sine qua non for improving the evaluation enterprise was building a stronger evaluation profession. The advice about the evaluation enterprise's central ingredient is just as relevant today as it was more than 30 years ago.  

    Join us in December 2017 as we continue the Sine Qua Non Dinner Series, which aims to contribute to building a stronger evaluation profession as envisioned by Cronbach, by connecting evaluators to their colleagues in their own neighborhoods.  The dinner will be hosted by incoming Washington Evaluators 2018 President Stephanie Cabell at True Food Kitchen in Fairfax. 

    During the members-only dinner, participants will have the opportunity to meet fellow evaluators (and neighbors!), discuss the state of the profession, and offer suggestions for improving the larger WE community and the profession.  

    Priority for participation will be given to individuals who live or work in the Fairfax and Falls Church area.  

    Note that participants are responsible for the cost of their dinners.
