Dynamic, Collaborative, and Influential
The purpose of the ASNNA Evaluation Committee is to advance evaluation practice that aligns with the SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework; distill learning to strengthen SNAP-Ed programs; and disseminate evaluation findings that advance methods, support practitioners, and contribute to advocacy efforts.
The committee develops an annual workplan that aligns with the key components of its purpose. Teams led by committee members establish annual objectives and work products then meet regularly to accomplish their goals. Progress on the workplan is reported to the full committee during monthly meetings. Ad hoc teams of diverse members are also pulled together as needed to provide an evaluative perspective for emerging issues, ensuring that the committee is dynamic, collaborative, and influential.
