Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are formal groups of members with a common interest in an aspect of evaluation. From time to time, the AES Board may consult a SIG on particular policy and strategic issues. 

Each SIG is responsible for its own day-to-day management and sets up its own virtual meeting space. Members usually meet face-to-face at the annual conference.

What are the current SIGs?

The following SIGs are currently active. If you are interested in joining, contact the relevant Convenor(s).

Australian Public Sector Evaluation Network (APSEN) SIG
Design and Evaluation SIG
Emerging Evaluators for Social Justice (EEJS) SIG
Multicultural Evaluation (MESIG) SIG
Systems Evaluation SIG

Interested in forming a new evaluation SIG?

SIGs may be created anew or grow from an existing informal discussion group. The formation of a new SIG is subject to a formal application process and requires approval by AES Board. Please contact the Chief Executive Officer, Bill Wallace, to discuss your idea and prior to any formal submission to the AES Board.
