The Chicagoland Evaluation Association invites Chicagoland evaluators attend a virtual panel where four CEA members will share their pathways to and in the field of evaluation. You can read a bit about our panelists below. At the event, we'll take a deeper dive into their journeys to evaluation as well as the ways that many of them are paving the way for others to become evaluators. There will be time to pose questions to panelists.
