Dear Seattle Evaluation Association Members,
It is with great excitement that I am writing to introduce you to the 2023 President of the Association, Landon Charlo! I will stay on as the Past-President for the next year and I am looking forward to collaborating with him. The Leadership Team is beyond excited to have Landon on board and I know that EvalSeattle will flourish under his leadership.
We are planning a few events in early 2023 to allow everyone to meet Landon but in the meantime you can check out his bio below.
Wishing you all a restful and relaxing holiday season!
Meet Landon Charlo!
Landon is in his final year of the Ph.D. program in Educational Psychology at Washington State University. He is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation in western Montana. His dissertation is focused on developing and conceptualizing an Indigenous Evaluation Framework to help further practice and policy decisions. Landon is interested in all aspects of evaluation and is looking forward to starting his career next summer. Currently as part of his graduate assistantship, Landon is an evaluator for a USDA funded summer internship program (Phenomics Big Data Management) at WSU and is enjoying his first experiences in the practice of evaluation. Over the next year he is intent on learning data visualization principles and software which he believes helps to materialize the flow of data into an object of zeal for the users of an evaluation, thus furthering utilization and recommendations. As the incoming President he is very grateful to the community of evaluators and applied researchers who are members of the Seattle Evaluation Association. He is committed to continuing the excellence exhibited by previous leadership teams and plans to provide learning, networking, and socializing opportunities for EvalSeattle.
