Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

The Jacksonville Community Council (JCCI) understands indicators and community change, with more than 25 years of producing the annual Quality of Life Progress Report for Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region, and two decades of helping other communities develop their own sustainable indicators projects. JCCI consultants give you the information you need to measure progress, identify priorities for action, and assess results.

I'd like to talk with you personally about how we can help. E-mail me at
ben@jcci.org, call (904) 396-3052, or visit CommunityWorks for more information. From San Antonio to Siberia, we're ready and willing to assist.

Blogger's Code of Conduct

There's an effort led by Tim O'Reilly to develop an online Blogger's Code of Conduct. Because I hope this blog is a model for civil public discourse (not that community indicator folks are known for anything different -- very few discussions about metadata standards invoke Godwin's Law, for example), I'm sharing the link to the Blogger's Code of Conduct Wiki and invite all who post here to adhere to its standards of decorum.

If there are any questions about the Code of Conduct or the responsibilities it places on those who host or post to this blog, please let me know.
