Build relationships in the Chicagoland evaluation community, network with the best, and participate in professional development opportunities with some of the best evaluation professionals in the Chicagoland area.
Membership benefits include...
Free attendance to all events: We host around six (6) professional development and social networking events every year. The typical cost for one event almost completely pays for a year's membership.
Be a part of the evaluation discussion: Whether you present your work, participate in a committee, run for office, or just attend our events, engaging with the CEA helps shape local evaluation practice. As the local affiliate of the American Evaluation Association (AEA), engagement here can have a national impact as well.
Get listed on our membership directory: The CEA does not officially endorse anyone's work or provide official recommendations, but just being on the list says something to potential employers and contract partners.
