This upcoming February 23-25th, the Tamarack Institute will be bringing the popular workshop, Evaluating Community Impact: Capturing and Making Sense of Community Outcomes to Toronto, Ontario for three days of interactive learning, peer networking, and dialogue centred on the topic of evaluating community change.

This popular workshop was oversubscribed in Calgary in 2013, and Halifax and Winnipeg in 2014 and in an effort to ensure that this opportunity is known to all who might benefit from attending the workshop this year; we would like to invite you to act as an event partner to help us spread the word in your local region.
