Members who have made a long-term and wide-ranging contribution to the AES and the field of evaluation are recognised through a special category of membership called 'Fellow of the AES'. They share their outstanding expertise and experience in evaluation by providing advice to the organisation and contributing at our professional learning events.

Nominations open in June each year and successful nominations are usually announced at the Gala Awards Dinner held during the annual AES International Evaluation Conference.
