Board Nominations

CES-NCC Board Nominations

Mark your Calendars! The CES-NCC Board of Directors elections will take place online in May 2022. The electronic ballot will be sent out to all CES-NCC members and will include the names of all successful candidates along with their summary of interest and curriculum vitae.

Interested in a rewarding experience? Join the Board of Directors for our National Capital Chapter (NCC). It’s an opportunity to make a difference in our local Evaluation Community! You are invited to nominate yourself for a position on the NCC Board. There are five positions open this year. The term of office is for three years, July 1st, 2022 – June 30, 2025.

The CES-NCC Board of Directors consists of a Past-President, eleven (11) elected members, including two student members. See work description of directors.

The CES-NCC Board is a ‘Working Board’ where each member takes on some aspects of the services delivered to NCC Members (e.g., networking, membership, partnership). We meet for roughly 2 hours once a month (during lunch time) to discuss ideas for services, review progress on our plans and manage the business of the Chapter. This is an excellent chance to network with your Board colleagues. Board members are also expected to contribute to specific services delivered to NCC members. While we engage administrative support for logistical matters, the Board member will be involved in planning and coordinating events or activities related to networking, professional development and communicating with members. The amount of time varies and may be more intense at certain times of the year.

You can find a list and brief biography for the current Board at the CES-NCC Board Page. We strive to have the Board represent the diversity of our membership to the degree possible. We encourage those employed in government, in the non-profit sector, academia and as consultants, as well as students, to stand for election. Emerging and established evaluators are equally welcome and encouraged to submit a nomination.

Volunteering to be a member of the Board of Directors is your opportunity to directly influence the decisions of our local Chapter and National Council, as well as contribute to the field of evaluation. Nominations close April 29, 2022 and are followed by an electronic election in May 2022.

The English session will be held on April 11 at noon; and the French session will be held on April 12 at noon. You can register at the following links:
