A category of membership known as ‘Fellow of the Society’ was adopted by the AES in 2003 in order to recognise outstanding contributions by members to the Society and to evaluation more generally in Australasia.

This policy envisioned a number of purposes and benefits in relation to achieving the aims of the Society as well as benefits for a Fellow. It was seen to be a distinct form of recognition, differing from the ET&S Award and other categories of award made by the Society, and one which implicitly brought with it a variety of roles and responsibilities.

Criteria and evidence

There are four screening criteria specified to determine eligibility for nomination together with seven substantive criteria. The latter focus on Contributions to Evaluation, essentially in evaluation teaching, research and practice, and on Contributions to the Society, primarily in relation to its aims and operations. A nomination should address each of the substantive criteria even if a particular criterion is not seen as a key basis for the nomination.
