Corporation Consortium

The fifteeth annual Corporation Consortium Conference is scheduled for December 8, 2010.

The primary goal of the 2009 conference was to share what each of our evaluation clients had learned over the prior year. See the agenda here. One participant calls it “the best conference I attend all year.”

This conference is planned every December and is for members of the Corporate Consortium or Affiliate Members. Specific topics at last year's conference included:

  • What's new this past year?
  • Measurement and evaluation
    • First and second year reports
    • Beyond the second year reports
  • Decision support function of the HMRC
  • Review of new learnings over the past five years
  • Review of next generation programming
