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.

Webinar: Are your community indicators making a difference?

I'm going to be putting on a Webinar for the Community Indicators Consortium on Thursday, June 25, 2009, from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT. This one is just for the members of CIC, so if you'd like to attend but are not a member, please consider joining.

The title of the webinar is: "Are your community indicators making a difference?"

This will be a conversation about how to measure the results of your community indicators project (CIP) and the key design elements that increase a CIP's effectiveness and impact. Here's what they're saying about the webinar:

Ben Warner, Deputy Director of JCCI, will lead the dialogue, beginning with his insights learned from JCCI's 25 years experience in annual community indicator reports. Bring your questions and your experience to the table June 25th from 12-1pm EDT.

After you register you will receive a confirmation email with information about signing into the meeting.

Note that CIC Lunchinars are currently only open to CIC members. If you are interested in becoming a member, see the Join CIC section of our web site at

I hope you can join us.
