Invitation to Provide Feedback on the AEA Draft Competencies

In 2015 the AEA Board of Directors appointed a Task Force to develop a set of evaluator competencies for the association. The membership of the American Evaluation Association has previously endorsed three documents that have contributed to the professionalization of our field.

You may access the draft competencies themselves here.

We are now soliciting your opinions on the current draft set of competencies and its potential uses. We also want to hear your thoughts on the opportunities created by and the risks associated with defining and endorsing a set of evaluator competencies to guide evaluation professionals. Results will be used in the next revision of the draft competencies. In addition, we plan to analyze the results of all the feedback for presentation at the 2016 AEA annual meeting in Atlanta.

Please send comments to the Task Force by writing an email to competencies@eval.org. We welcome your input.

AEA 2017

The 2017 American Evaluation Association conference will be held in Washington, DC from November 6-11. We are looking for a wide variety of presentations and posters that focus on any aspect of health evaluation include panel discussions, expert lectures, and skill building workshops. We encourage you to think creatively about your presentations, their design, and format to provide attendees with the best experience. Please choose the presentation type that best fits your material and utilizes your content in the greatest way. The Health TIG strongly encourages presentations and posters that focus on evaluation methods rather than the results of a study or project. The deadline for abstract submissions is 11:59 PM ET March 16, 2017.
