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.

Charity Channel Reviews Results That Matter

I'm a big fan of the book Results That Matter - Improving Communities by Engaging Citizens, Measuring Performance, and Getting Things Done, by Paul Epstein, Paul Coates, and Lyle Wray, with David Swain. The website that describes the book and the concepts in it can be found here.

Charity Channel has reviewed the book -- you can find the review here. I'm excited about the concepts in the book going out to a wider audience.

Unfortunately, not being a Charity Channel subscriber, I can't read the review. Can someone tell me what it says? Thanks!
