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.

The AGA Weblog (http://aga.typepad.com/aga/ or click the link on the left-hand column of this page) is providing summaries of the Performance Management conference held in Seattle this past week. Check out Quantifying Quality of Life—Measuring Matters in Government to whet your appetite.

More is coming, we're promised. In the meantime, if you have other conference write-ups that you'd like to share (or suggest that we link to), please drop me a line.
