Annual Conference

AEA Annual Conference

AEA's Annual Conference brings together evaluators from around the country and around the world for professional sharing. Each year, the presiding AEA President identifies a theme for the conference plenaries and highlight strand woven throughout the event.

As part of the Annual Conference, the STEM TIG hosts a Business Meeting to highlight ways to advance the field and coordinate on-going communication and professional development activities.

  • Theme: "(re)shaping evaluation together"
  • November 7-12

  • Conference theme description: In 2022, the year of the Tiger, you are invited to bring your unique evaluation skills, competencies, and perspectives to (re) Shaping Evaluation Together.  For this conference, we seek to create a space to explore three significant shifts that are disrupting evaluation practice, and that will influence how our field theorizes and applies evaluation to evidence-informed decision making: 1) Equity, social justice, and decolonization; 2) New funders and social finance; and 3) Digital data and technology.
