Continuing the tradition, the Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund (CESEF) will be holding its Silent Auction during the CES 2017 National Conference Opening Reception on Sunday, April 30 from 6-8 pm.

This is one of the CES Educational Fund’s key fundraisers and we welcome your support.

For those of you who may not be familiar with CESEF, we are an independent organization that was originally created by the Canadian Evaluation Society in 1990 and reorganized in 2005 to improve national capacity for evaluation through educational activities. In 2006, it became officially registered as a Canadian Charity. The purpose of the CESEF is to provide scholarships, awards, and educational opportunities to Canadians wishing to further their knowledge within the field of program evaluation.

You can donate an item for the Silent Auction by contacting Wendy Doughty (wdoughty@ualberta.ca). You can bring the item with you or send it with a colleague. If you are not attending the conference, or would prefer to give a monetary donation, you can do so through the Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund Website. Charitable receipts will be issued for income tax purposes for both in-kind and monetary donations.

Be sure to check out the Silent auction at C2017!

It will be a great opportunity to have fun bidding against your colleagues and acquiring some great gifts for yourself or others!
