The UK Evaluation Society Council represents all evaluators across different sectors, disciplines and career stages

Council members have a very important role supporting the Society to operate, including planning the UK Evaluation Society Annual Conference, AGM and training events, and advising how to improve the Society’s services.

All Council members are elected for a two-year term, or longer if re-elected. The Council consists of Directors (President, Vice President(s), Immediate Past President, Secretary and Treasurer) and at least ten ordinary members. Each Council member participates in at least one working group.

Elections to Council take place in autumn each year and all members of the Society are eligible to apply, requiring a proposer and seconder among existing members of the Society.
