The IMPCON community is invited to join the global expert membership of Social Value International (SVI) for all SVI 2016 annual conference sessions and workshops, which will be held during Impact Convergence 2016.
On Tuesday, October 25, John Tamihere will deliver our keynote. Throughout that afternoon, you’ll be able to take part in a variety of sessions, including:
What is “good enough” impact measurement?
The cost of impact measurement: Who should pay, how much, and when?
Scaling impact, scaling impact measurement, and measuring impact at scale.
Giving voice, sharing power: Strategies for stakeholder inclusion.
Impact measurement standards in accounting, impact investment, and evaluation.
Impact measurement at the portfolio level: Aggregation, segmentation, and diversification.
To RCT or not to RCT? That is the question.
Beyond logic models: Using theory, evidence, and experience to understand impact.
An informal day of learning and connecting. You will get to know professionals from diverse communities while learning about evaluation, impact investing, social entrepreneurship, and other areas of practice.
Leaders in all sectors will share their vision of how impact measurement must develop over the next five years to ensure sustainable impact. Participants will work in teams to refine the vision and draft an action agenda. Concurrent sessions will explore various related topics.
The draft action agenda will be presented at Evaluation 2016, the largest evaluation conference in the world. Feedback from evaluators and other participating professionals will be used to refine the action agenda.
Following the event, steward organizations will facilitate ongoing cross-sector collaborations that advance the action agenda and the state of the art of impact measurement.

A growing number of international players have been working to develop markets for privately funded ventures with a complex mix of purposes: generating financial returns, improving the lives of people, and healing the environment. These nascent markets depend on the availability of reliable impact information.
While the information currently available is of a higher quality than it was five years ago, it is not sufficient to make these markets sustainable.
At IMPCON, participants will work together to develop an action agenda that advances the state of the art of impact measurement. After the convergence, the agenda will be advanced by cross-sector teams under the leadership of steward organizations.
