Annual Report and Evaluation Process
The purpose of the Section/SIG evaluation is to assess the functioning of the Section/SIG throughout the year. By assessing the activities and communications of the Sections/SIGS with their membership, the ADEA COS Administrative Board seeks to confirm continuity, vitality, improvement and collaboration of the Section/SIGS. The process serves to encourage alignment of the Sections/SIGs with the ADEA strategic goals and directions.
This Section/SIG assessment occurs annually by the Administrative Board following the submission of the Annual Report from each Section Councilor and each SIG Chair. Annual Reports are due no later than July 1 following the Annual Session. The period of evaluation is from Annual Session to Annual Session.
The Administrative Board uses the annual report in the selection process for the ADEA Council of Sections Thomas F. Nowlin Award for Best Performance by a Section.
Each report should include details on group activities in the outlined format and appropriate for posting to the ADEA website. Each leadership team is responsible for posting the annual report and meeting minutes to the listserv of their respective group.
