The end is a nice place to start.
One of our wonderful leaders, Dr. Rodney Hopson, passed the torch as president of the AEA board, but not before a very moving, inspirational, photovoice presentation made from pictures submitted by members from around the world.
The champagne toast was a nice touch to keep people around as well! 😉
For those of you who didn’t make it to the closing plenary session you really missed out on a treat. It really helped to put the icing on the cake for the Evaluation 2012 theme:
Evaluation in Complex Ecologies
Relationships, Responsibilities, Relevance
Be sure to stay tuned for updates once the dynamic powerpoint slides are posted!
Could it get any better?
Yes, it did, there was an awesome cultural dance led by a Native American youth that got evaluators, young and old, from near and far, in one of the longest “soul train” type of lines you’ve probably ever seen at an AEA Conference. I know what you’re thinking…but it was FUN!

Check out the real deal here from the closing plenary! Thanks for sending a link Susan 🙂
