Welcome to the International and Cross Cultural Evaluation (ICCE) TIG Homepage! 

The ICCE Website space presents content related to standard and updates information on the TIG's business. The ICCE TIG has more than 950 members, making it one of the largest at AEA. Our members are distributed across the globe, which makes our website a very important means of communication for us.

Join Us for Eval 2017

The AEA Annual Conference will be held in Washington D.C. on November 6-11, 2017. This year's conference theme is “From Learning to Action”. More information on the conference can be found on the Conference Website

During the conference more than 130  ICCE TIG members will be presenting in more than 85 sessions. For more details on the sessions sponsored by our TIG, please go to the AEA conference program website  and select “International and Cross-Cultural Evaluation” under the Track search criteria.

Business Meeting: This year ICCE's business meeting will take place on Thursday, November 9 2017, from 5:15-6:00pm at Washington 6 Room. Similar to last year, we plan to have an interactive meeting where you will be given ample opportunities to discuss items that concern the future of the TIG and the organization. Once again, you will also have a chance to celebrate our International Travel Awardees and your evaluation work in international and cross-cultural settings. Please send us pictures (hanife.cakici@gmail.com) by Thursday, October 26 from your assignments/missions carried out this past year. We will create a slide show for the Business Meeting. Light refreshments will be served. 

International Travel Award Winners: Thanks to the proceeds from the Silent Auction and generous contribution by The Rockefeller Foundation, ICEE in collaboration with AEA has granted 17 travel awards (out of 70 applicants) to first-time international participants representing several regions of the world.  

The Local Arrangements Working Group (LAWG): The LAWG is responsible for mobilizing local expertise and resources to enhance Evaluation 2017 that will take place in Washington, D.C. The LAWG volunteers are also working to ensure that the international attendees feel welcomed to the conference and to the D.C. area by undertaking a few initiatives:

Need transportation from the airport? If you're an international attendee, please let the LAWG know your expected arrival time using this form. They will then see if one of the LAWG volunteers can meet you at the airport, or connect those arriving at the same time so you can share the cost of a taxi.

Things to do around Washington DC: The nation’s capital has much to offer!  For tips and ideas, check out the Local Resources Guide page on the Washington Evaluators webpage.  There are suggestions for independent site seeing, an interactive map with restaurants and bars near the hotel, a form to fill out for those who are interested in participating in group tours of some of the amazing museums and institutions that DC has to offer, and some tips to getting around DC.

International Buddy Program: Consider participating in the International Buddy Program. This is an excellent program that connects US-based evaluators with international evaluators to share experiences and ensure that our international participants feel welcomed at the conference. Please visit the conference website if you are interested in participating in the program for Evaluation 2017. 

 Volunteer for the Silent AuctionOn Friday night (November 10), AEA is once again hosting the famous silent auction whose proceeds are utilized to fund international travel awards. This is a great opportunity to network and socialize and bid on great books, novelties, and foods from around the world.  For many years, this event has been managed by Hubert Paulmer who puts in a tremendous effort every year to make the Silent Auction a success and he could use your help! Hubert is looking for volunteers to set up the Auction. Please send Hubert an email if you are interested: hubertpaulmer@gmail.com
