By Olha Krasovska (Ukraine)
Sometimes it is better to make a decision having less information. Sounds strange? Maybe, but here I’m talking about my personal experience of participation in the European Evaluation Society Biannual conference in Thessaloniki.

“Really a Sharing and Learning Event in Thessaloniki, Greece!”
By Asham Baysa (Ethiopia)
I attended EES 2018 conference for the first time and it was the most amazing experience for me to share and learn from evaluations within Europe and across other continents. Resilience is a central concept of this conference. The workshop was very demanding, but very informative and helped me to come up with practical knowledge.

The EES board meeting yielded a range of productive outcomes and was enjoyed in the city of Prague.
EES is warmly encouraging us to submit proposals for the upcoming, exciting next EES Conference that will take place from the 1st to the 5th October in Greece. I was wondering about why they are interested in us, European-ish (somehow related with Europe) evaluators, EES members, presenting roundtables, panels, posters or even pre-conference workshops.
And that made me remember all the reasons why every time I go to a conference, I submit proposals to try to contribute. Here’s why I do it:
The UNDP-NEC Conference that took place in Istanbul (16-20 Oct. 2018) is behind us and we can look back to a very interesting event with special contributions from members of EES TWG on Private Sector Evaluation.
On the 12th October 2017 EES attended the annual conference of the Hellenic Evaluation Society represented by Mariana Branco - EES board member. It was an excellent venue with an high quality and very strategic audience. There were participants from greek academia, public bodies and consultancy firms. The EES presence was very much appreciated by our colleagues.
