AEA continues to offer support to members and the evaluation community as a whole. We understand this is a strenuous and difficult time, and many are under significant financial strain.

For April, May, and June membership renewals, AEA will freeze renewal costs for 60 days upon request. If you are concerned about an upcoming membership renewal, please contact us at

We encourage you to continue to take advantage of your member benefits, including:

Coffee Breaks 
As an AEA member, you have free access to our library of Coffee Breaks. These short, 20 minute webinars are great for sharing lessons with your colleagues, while you are apart.

eStudies are a great way to be immersed in top-of-mind evaluation themes and topics via an online course. Here are a few upcoming eStudies to consider exploring, offered at a discounted rate to members. You can also access recorded eStudies on the Knowledge Hub.

·      Introduction to Independent Consulting (starting May 4, 2020)
·      Introduction to R (starting June 4, 2020)

Conference Recordings
AEA members now have free access to the Evaluation 2019 recordings. Review the Presidential Strand and Plenary sessions now to refresh your memory of what you've learned, or to catch up on sessions you may have missed.

AEA's daily blog, AEA365, includes a series of Saturday posts offering reflection and information for evaluation practice during this global pandemic.

Topics covered include:

·      Self-Care in the Age of Coronavirus
·      Making it Work Online - A Rapid Response to COVID
·      Contactless Evaluation - (in Times of COVID-19)

Click here to subscribe to AEA365. We will continue to share resources and experiences of our community. 

AEA encourages you to turn to the evaluation community through EvalTalk. This discussion forum provides a safe space to trade insights and concerns, talk through specific challenges that are arising, and overall, to lean on each other for support. Now is the time to maintain strong connections worldwide and seek guidance in navigating today's climate.

Local Affiliates
Consider reaching out to an AEA affiliate for localized resources and support. AEA teams up with local affiliates as part of the Local Affiliate Collaborative, an effort designed to support, sustain, and strengthen affiliates by fostering joint and coordinated action among and between affiliates and AEA.

You can also stay connected to your community through TIGs. Topical Interest Groups are defined around a certain topic or interest and create a forum enabling its members to become a resource that the entire community can leverage. This organized community and combined experience is needed now more than ever. As an AEA member, you are allowed to join up to five of the 60 Topical Interest Groups.
