Session Abstract (150 words): 

The Board of Directors of AEA established the Evaluation Policy Task Force (EPTF) in September 2007, to enhance AEA's ability to identify and influence policies that have a broad effect on evaluation practice and to establish a framework and procedures for accomplishing this objective. The EPTF has issued key documents promoting a wider role for evaluation in the Federal Government, influenced legislation and executive policy, and informed AEA members and others about the value of evaluation through public presentations and newsletter articles. It has also connected with other national evaluation organizations and governments; and reached out to state evaluation offices and organizations.  This session will provide an update on their work and invite member input on their plans and actions.
