Individual members or Chapters of the Canadian Evaluation Society are invited to nominate candidates for the Service to CES award. Current members of the CES Board of Directors are not eligible to nominate candidates or sign letters of support as Chapter members.
The Service to CES award is granted to an individual(s) who is a member of CES and has made a significant contribution to the work of CES. This contribution would normally be made over a period in excess of two years; however, individuals who have performed in exemplary fashion during a shorter period of time may receive the award. The nomination is to include examples of demonstrated experience or activity and specify the time frame and significance of this activity.
While work at a Chapter or local level will be considered in determining the award, the individual's contribution should be predominantly at a national level or produce national benefit. Contributions may take the form of service on the CES Board of Directors or a committee of the CES, publications, organizational development initiatives, management of programs or projects, or international representation relevant to CES.
Current members of the CES Board of Directors are not eligible to receive the award.
Content of nominations: In order to be considered by the Board of Directors, each nomination must be supported by a minimum of three letters of support. Collectively, these letters should address the criteria for the award by including examples of activities with the time frame and the significance of the activity.
Timelines for nominations: Names should be submitted by February 5, 2016 to the Chair of the Governance and Process Committee at [email protected].
