COEN membership offers many benefits to you and the field. COEN offers opportunities to:
Network and connect: COEN hosts a monthly Community of Practice (CoP), interactive events facilitated by local evaluators to promote cross-member learning. Past topics have included presenting and using evaluation results; diversifying the evaluation pipeline; and communicating the value of evaluation.
Develop your skills: COEN offers a wide variety of structured professional development opportunities, including full-day, half-day, and lunchtime sessions. Members receive reduced pricing and advanced registration! Past professional development opportunities have included using human-centered design to visualize qualitative data; analytic software training; and equitable evaluation.
Learn about emerging topics: COEN connects our members with emerging topics in the field. For example, we host an annual “preview” to showcase COEN members’ presentations at AEA.
Build connections and skills for your organization: COEN loves to partner with other organizations to offer professional development and networking opportunities. Reach out to discuss what this look like for your organization!
Get involved in the community: COEN’s newsletter and listserv provide our members with up-to-date opportunities such as job postings, Request for Proposals, tools and resources, and events and conferences.
Support students: COEN is committed to supporting students, including offering reduced pricing on memberships and professional development.
