Debating Professional Designations for Evaluators: Reflections on the Canadian Process
Cousins, J. Bradley; Cullen, Jim; Malik, Sumbal; Maicher, Brigitte
Journal of MultiDisciplinary Evaluation, v6 n11 p71-82 Jan 2009
This paper provides a reflective account of a consultation process on professional designations for evaluators initiated and coordinated by the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES). Described are: (1) the forces leading CES to generate discussion and debate about professional designations for Canadian evaluators, (2) the process of developing and implementing a request for proposals for a tentative action plan that would serve as a basis for debate, and (3) the subsequent development and implementation of a pan-Canadian, tripartite consultation process that involved CES members, CES Chapter organizations, and partners of the Society (including evaluation users). The paper concludes with reflections on the process and a summation of lessons learned. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
