Dear Development Evaluation Colleagues,
As my second and last Presidential term draws to a close at the end of March, 2014, I wanted to thank all of you for your support. You have all helped to make IDEAS a wonderful, vibrant, and truly international association of persons interested in development evaluation. We are now close to 1000 members. We have also paid off all debts and actually are financially solvent.
I wish the new President well. Please give him or her the same strong support that you have provided to me over these past years.
The IDEAS board is active and truly helping to carry this organization forward. I trust you will all support the board and seek ways for you individually to get engaged.
Again, my personal thanks to you all.
I look forward to seeing all of you at our next Global Assembly in 2015!!
Ray C. Rist
President, IDEAS, 2009 to 2014
PS....please vote for the new officers and board members. Each vote counts!!
