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, call (904) 396-3052, or visit CommunityWorks for more information. From San Antonio to Siberia, we're ready and willing to assist.

AGA Adds New Blog

The Advancing Government Accountability group -- -- has added a new feature to their website.

Here's the news:

AGA's blog is a new feature on our AGA website ( ) that uses a variety of guest "speakers" to set the stage for the day's topic. Tomorrow I will be writing about performance reporting and some of the ways government entities have used their performance reports in decision making and citizen communication. I would appreciate your comments and observations not only to stimulate a good discussion but also to share best practices with those reading the blog.

The first set of articles are quite strong. Check it out!
