Join us in exploring evaluation through the lens of our conference theme A Year of Possibilities. We are looking forward to a conference that inspires as well as challenges our thinking about evaluation. The H-PEA annual conference has become truly international, and we invite participants from throughout Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region and beyond. The conference will feature virtual skill-building, roundtable, and poster sessions, as well as a post-conference workshop and a few in-person events. 

H-PEA invites you to submit a proposal for one of the following opportunities in our virtual sessions offered in the mornings, Oct 11-13,  8:45am - 12:45pm HST:

Presentation Format

Skill-building--Skill-building workshops are 60-minutes of teaching an evaluation skill. It’s a “show, tell, and apply” presentation that teaches a concept, process, or tool, with much of the time dedicated to hands-on activities that let participants practice what’s demonstrated. Presenters should provide a balance of presentation, discussion, and practice for session attendees. Ideally, workshops will address one or more of the evaluator competencies defined by AEA.

Roundtable--60-minute guided discussions; an opportunity to share a work in progress or an issue/concern relevant to evaluators. Roundtable presentations typically include a short presentation, followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and focused discussion on a particular topic, including works-in-progress. The abstract should include the targeted questions to be discussed.

Poster--All poster presenters will present in a 60 minute session, each in a breakout room to discuss your work with attendees in an informal setting. All evaluation related projects are welcome. Attendees can enter any breakout room of their choice at any time during the poster session. Posters have a chance to win poster cash awards. First place will win $100.
