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 was held in Washington D.C. on November 6-11, 2017. The 2017 conference theme was “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 presented 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 took place on Thursday, November 9 2017, from 5:15-6:00pm at Washington 6 Room. Similar to last year, we had an interactive meeting to discuss items that concern the future of the TIG and the organization. We celebrated our International Travel Awardees and evaluation work in international and cross-cultural settings. Please send us pictures (firstname.lastname@example.org) from your assignments/missions carried out this past year. We will create a slide show for the next Business Meeting.
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 was responsible for mobilizing local expertise and resources to enhance Evaluation 2017 that took take place in Washington, D.C. The LAWG volunteers were also working to ensure that the international attendees felt welcome to the conference and to the D.C. area by undertaking a few initiatives:
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 2018.
Volunteer for the Silent Auction: On Friday night of EVAL2017, AEA hosted once again 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: email@example.com.
