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.

This is an archive of thoughts I had about indicators and the community indicators movement. Some of the thinking is outdated, and many of the links may have broken over time.

The deadline for submitting proposals for CIC's 2009 Conference, to be held October 1-2, 2009 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue Washington, USA, has been extended to June 30th.

The theme of this year's conference is:

We are looking for proposals for presentations, panels and speakers for the conference dates of October 1-2. We are also looking for proposals for optional training workshops available, for an additional fee, on September 30th.

Interested presenters can see the pdf of the complete call for proposals and submit proposals on the CIC web site. See our Seventh Annual International Conference page for more information and to register. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, see our Sponsorship page.

Also, please note that June 15th is the end of the special discount registration rates -- $250 for members and $300 for nonmembers -- for the conference. After that registration for the conference will be $300 for members and $350 for nonmembers. See our on-line registration page for more details.

We are very excited about how the conference is shaping up and look forward to seeing you in the fall.
