Learning Sessions and Schedule

Approaches to Evaluation

Begins June 22, 2017

Nonprofits of all sorts are being challenged by funders and others to describe the differences they make in the quality of life for the individuals, groups, families and communities they serve. However, few have the specialized resources and personnel to approach evaluation with confidence or in a way that assists them to make better informed strategic and operational choices.

Focused on assisting organizations to understand evaluation and the different approaches that can be taken, this 7 session series offers practical advice and information and will provide access to helpful resources and supports. Nonprofits will leave sessions better prepared to approach evaluation with confidence and sessions will assist them to develop and use methods suitable to their organization and its programs and services., HNN is once again offering a 7 session learning series on Approaches to Evaluation. Each session is $35 for HNN members and $50 for non-members, or $200 for the full series for members and $300 for non-members.

Session registrations are $35 for HNN members and $45 for non-members. Nonprofits who are members and who enroll in all 7 sessions will have a flat fee of $200.

This series has a limited registration of no more than 20 people.
