This event is officially sold out!! However, the Happy Hour after the event (McMenamins Broadway Pub, 4:30-6:00 PM) is open to everyone, so please join us there, no RSVP required.

Thanks to everyone who emailed about getting on the waitlist! It is officially full as well. We are keeping that list and will let you all know as soon as possible if any spots open up.



OPEN is happy to be hosting a half-day skill-building workshop. The format will include 3 skills-building lectures followed by a round of lightning talks and a local happy hour. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops, questions, and a desire to learn! No prior knowledge of any software is required, although some basic knowledge of each may enhance learning. One ticket covers all talks and tickets cannot be purchased for individual talks.


Lighting “How-to” Talks will be a series of brief 7-minute talks on any evaluation-related topic. Any event attendee is welcome to present. This is a great opportunity to practice public speaking, add a line to your CV, and teach your colleagues an interesting skill!! Please reach out to [email protected] if you’re interested in presenting. For example, great talks would be “How-to Design a Survey Item” or “How-to Build a Logic Model”.
