The CES membership database was analyzed in order to determine the
socio-demographic profi le that best defi nes Credentialed Evaluators (CE). In general,
those currently holding CE status tend to be employed in the private sector, have a PhD-level education, have long-term experience in evaluation, have a major focus
on evaluation within their professional activities, and be located within the Atlantic region, Western Canada, or the National Capital Chapter region. Implications of
these trends for the sustainability of the CE designation program and options for
broadening the scope of uptake within the CES membership are discussed.
