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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome your input.

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. Please click on this link for more information and submission instructions: http://www.eval.org/page/evaluation-2017-proposal-submissions
