Introduction to Program Evaluation for Budget and Management Analysts

July 7-8, 2015

How do you measure the impact of your department's work? Do you have an established program or process you need to evaluate?  Are your funders asking for evaluation plans as part of a request?  

Bring your own project or program needs to this workshop, and leave with a draft evaluation plan. This is a practical, hands-on course, so be prepared to share ideas and learn from each other.

Held in two half-day sessions, the workshop is being offered in conjunction with NCLGBA Summer Conference in Wrightsville Beach, but serves as a stand alone class.

Gain the following skills:

  • Identify a variety of program evaluation tools
  • Map out a basic evaluation plan that can be used in your office
  • Understand how to effectively present evaluation results

Understand how program evaluation fits into budget planning and implementation processes
