“I really appreciated how holistic Metris' conclusions were in their evaluation of our program. Not only did they make sensible recommendations that would directly improve the program for our constituents, but they also thought about the people behind the work, urging us to make sure we increase our staff capacity to avoid potential burnout.” —Dimi Venkov, Arts Alliance IL Director of Development
