Searching TIG Archives by Elizabeth Grim

Hi, my name is Elizabeth Grim, AEA365 Curator and an independent consultant moving organizations from confusion to clarity to tell their story with data.

One of the many amazing resources offered through the American Evaluation Association is the opportunity to learn from a colleagues through discussion boards and Topical Interest Groups (TIGs). TIGs are smaller subgroups of AEA based on a common interest. There are over 60 TIGs, and AEA members can join up to 5 groups for free with membership.

TIGs facilitate a way for members to connect with colleagues over similar interest, ask questions, and share resources. They also provide great leadership opportunities for those wanting to take on a larger role in the field. TIGs also offer an online discussion board as a way for members to continue to connect outside the annual conference, AEA365, and EvalTalk.

Hot Tip

Have an evaluation-related question? Use the AEAConnect discussion board search function to see the full archive of chats around a certain topic. If none of these responses are quite what you need, post a new question for discussion. For example, the independent consulting TIG has 36 threads on insurance. Obviously this is a hot topic among members!

Step 1: Log into your AEA account

Step 2: Head over to AEA Connect

Step 3: Explore by browsing discussion posts or resource library entries, or participate in a discussion by writing your own post
