The European Evaluation Society (EES) recently invited you to participate in a survey about a Voluntary Evaluator Peer Review (VEPR) system prepared under the aegis of the Professionalization Thematic Working Group. My Presidential message in the 2013 September issue of Connections deals with this strategic issue.
Broad based participation by the evaluation community in this survey is extremely important since it addresses questions that are vital to the future of our discipline. Given the complexity and sensitivity of the topic the EES board wished to ascertain the diverse views and rich perspectives of our far flung practice.
The deadline for the VEPR survey has passed. The results of the survey will be analysed soon.
Thank you very much for sharing your views and your participation in this survey.
President, European Evaluation Society
