Jennifer Norins: Chair
I have been a member of SAMEA for the past 5 years, because I recognize the value that VOPEs play in professional development. My interest in joining the SAMEA board is to contribute to this VOPE in its mission of supporting and expanding the monitoring and evaluation field in South(ern) Africa. I have benefitted through the capacity building offerings and the conference and want to contribute my energies to continuing these efforts. 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 am aware of the level of effort involved in being a board member and am willing to commit my time as required.
