The current SAMEA board members

My experience in academia has exposed me to M&E research and teaching and it will enable me to take forward SAMEA’s research and scholarship work and foster the practice of documenting and sharing learning among M&E stakeholders.

I believe that, I can bring on board my strategic agility coupled with my diverse academic background and vast experience in M&E as well as experience in other sectors such as Academic, Research, Financial and NGO sectors. I will serve as a gateway between SAMEA and the NGOs, bringing NGO memberships.

I believe very strongly that the evaluation profession requires committed volunteers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work, if it is to continue to grow from strength to strength. So, the major contribution I intend to bring to SAMEA is being fully committed to its goals and objectives and working hard and smart to see these to fruition.

I would bring my varied knowledge, experience and skills to the SAMEA board, specifically: M&E at implementation, management and strategic levels in the NPO/education sector; mentorship and development of capacity-building initiatives; and a strong academic background.

I am a student of M&E as well as a practitioner, as an emerging evaluator I believe that it is crucial for the SAMEA board to have a member who not only understands the experiences of emerging evaluators but one who has also lived these experiences and continues to identify with emerging evaluators.

Mayibongwe Mncube - Deputy Treasurer

SAMEA as an institution can grow its knowledge base in this sector, but also serve as an advocate for change by introducing the robust discussions that are usually had at SAMEA conferences where Private Sector players are present.

In terms of my contribution, I have the M&E, management and Board experience and maturity to support the Board and at this stage of my career I am happy to support others to have prominent roles.

As a member of academia I will present focus on the importance of relevant research and capacity strengthening. As a prior member of the board, I will also be able to offer institutional memory to the existing board.

I will bring in my energy and commitment to the Association. I will also share my organising skills to assist in organising for the successful SAMEA conferences. I will share my skills in the field of research, planning, monitoring and evaluation.

Dr Ruth Mojalefa

I bring modern 13 years of experience as a monitoring evaluation practitioner in the development and public sectors. I also bring along solid ethical leadership principles. I aim to contribute towards the achieving of the mission and the vision of the organization during my tenure.

I have a natural inclination for networks and collaboration, and I am a doer and I would bring this dedication with me to the board. I am currently highly involved in the SAMEA KZN MERL Network and coordinate the newly established SAMEA COP on Evaluation for Just Transition.

I can contribute as a board member of SAMEA because I have extensive experience in working with a broad range of clients such as the South African government, NGOs, UN agencies, Academia and Foundations. I also understand what it takes to grow emerging evaluators as I have mentored many over the years.
