Jim Cullen

Winner, Service to the Society Award, 2008

Acceptance speech

D'abord j'aimerais remercier la Société québécoise d'évaluation de programme pour son support et son initiative. J'ai rencontré Jean-René Bibeau et d'autres collègues au colloque international sur l'évaluation à Vancouver en 1995. Je félicite la SQEP pour le congrès de 2008. J'aimerais souligner la contribution importante des jeunes évaluateurs et évaluatrices — une contribution parrainée annuellement par la SQEP et la SCE.

I would also like to thank those who nominated me. Your thoughtfulness is most appreciated. I enjoyed working with National Council.

It is a special treat to see the recent special issue of the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation focus on large scale educational evaluation. Please keep our leadership is this research field, especially through the Joint Committee on Standards in Educational Evaluation.

Finally, I would like to thank Maureen, my wife, and Jonathan and Michael, our children, for their love and support.

Merci
