The Atlanta-area Evaluation Association (AaEA) was formed in 2000 to support the broad and diverse group of evaluators in the Atlanta area. Our mission is to:
- Promote the science and practice of evaluation in both the public and private sectors.
- Improve the quality of evaluation by promoting professional evaluation practices and stimulating new evaluation ideas and opportunities.
- Enhance the professional life of evaluators by providing networking opportunities among evaluators and providing a forum for cross-fertilization of evaluation ideas among various professions, settings, and content areas.
- Add credibility and visibility to the evaluation field by bringing students into the evaluation field and mentoring their professional development.
We are a local affiliate of the American Evaluation Association.
