Planning and Evaluation Mini-Conference

A Planning and Evaluation Mini-Conference will be held April 23-24, 2007 in conjunction with the CSREES Administrative Officers' Conference in Seattle, WA. The administrative officers' conference is a training opportunity for CSREES partners to learn about best practices in doing business with CSREES, as well as to share challenges and success stories with their peers. The mini-conference is designed for those planning programs or engaged in performance measurement and program evaluation. Participants will learn about plan of work reporting, what CSREES has learned from the 2007-2011 plans submitted, and how CSREES has used and expects to use information from annual reports and plans.
