The 2020 Board of Directors has published an Action Plan to guide the organization’s activities this year. In following the approval of the Washington Evaluators Strategic Plan for 2017-2020, this Action Plan outlines the Board’s commitment to achieving the broader objectives of the organization, ensuring that the association operates efficiently for the benefit of its dues-paying members and the broader evaluation community in the Washington, D.C. area.
The 2020 Action Plan identifies for each objective specific action steps, associated deadlines and milestones, and the responsible person or committee. At the end of this year, we will provide an update to our members, illustrating the progress we have made on these items.
It is appropriate to note that as the Board prepared this plan during March and April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, forcing the Board to consider how the organization connects and supports our community at a time when meeting in person is no longer possible. For this reason, activities and events discussed in this Action Plan may be virtual in format rather than in-person. What matters is that we continue to offer opportunities to nurture our community of practice and build capacity for public good.
We are excited to continue our association’s strong tradition of promoting the field of evaluation in the Washington, D.C. area in 2020, and we thank our members for supporting and sustaining a strong community of local evaluators.
