The 2022-2023 CES national annual report is available for all members > CES 2022-2023 Annual Report

From the reports introduction:

It is a great pleasure to present our 2022-2023 Annual Report. This year, National Board and Chapters have worked hard to maintain business continuity amidst challenging conditions in the wake of the pandemic. We have relied on good humour and good faith to manage turnover and vacancies, while boldly pursuing innovation to achieve commitments outlined in our 2019-2024 Strategic Plan. As you read this summary of collective accomplishments, please join me in celebrating the many generous and talented volunteers behind it all.

In total, local Chapters and the National Board offered more than 60 webinars, conferences and in-person events across Canada, attracting over 1,400 participants. In addition to strengthening core competencies, they provided valuable opportunities for networking among evaluators and partners.

CES commitments to social equity, environmental sustainability, and Truth and Reconciliation are cross-cutting and interconnected priorities. National and Chapter professional development events worked to increased shared understanding of historical and ongoing issues, mobilized knowledge and tools, and amplified a range of voices and perspectives on key issues. We are working to elevate professionalization with attention to inclusion of evaluators, theories and models from a range of cultures, educational backgrounds and value systems.

We also took steps leverage technology for a more streamlined member experience. Two of our major accomplishments in this area were the launch of our new website and the new platform for the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation.

Andrealisa Belzer, CES 2022-2024 President
