Notification of acceptance: Early July (via email) 



Since 2005, the Hawai'i-Pacific Evaluation Association (H-PEA) has provided opportunities for evaluators and those interested in evaluation to share with and learn from each other. H-PEA invites you to submit a proposal for one of the following opportunities at the virtual conference.

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 work-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 $50.
