Dear Fellow WE Members –
I am excited to be starting 2018 as President of Washington Evaluators. It is a great honor to take over the helm as president and I thank the Board, WE’s past president Nick Hart for his leadership and ongoing support, and all of you for this opportunity.
As Nick said in his 2017 closing message to all of us, 2017 was indeed a fantastic year for evaluation in the Washington, DC, area. Whether at the local, state or national level, Washington Evaluators was at the forefront of key discussions in the discipline and proud to be an actor in this dynamic environment. Our members reflect that dynamism through their engagement in their organizations and externally in any number of realms. I look forward to soon sharing our goals and priorities for 2018 with all of you. We will continue with many of initiatives detailed in WE’s strategic plan and will build upon our accomplishments of 2017, not the least of which is increasing the opportunities for WE members to meaningfully engage with fellow evaluators.
For now, on behalf of the board of Washington Evaluators: “Best wishes to all in the New Year.”
