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.

CIC Announces Panelists for 2009 Conference

Here's an update from the Community Indicators Consortium:

There are still some spaces available in our 5 exciting preconference workshops including:

And this isn't all. The final draft schedule of panels and panelists for CIC's Seventh International Conference on Indicators is now posted on our website. Take a look today to see some of the interesting and exciting topics and participants from across North America and beyond.

We'll be adding detailed descriptions of the sessions and additions regularly over the next days. Join us at the Meydenbauer Conference Center in Bellevue, WA, September 30 - October 2nd, so you don't miss a single learning and networking opportunity. Register now!

REMEMBER: We have two hotels offering rooms at a special conference rate: the rooms at the Marriott Courtyard are $149/night and just across the street from the Meydenbauer. The rooms at the Coast Hotel are only $94/night and several blocks away. These special room rates will run out soon, so make your reservation.

Note from me: I'll be there, and I'll be providing a half-day workshop as well as providing input into a couple of the conference sessions. If you're going to the conference, take a moment to say hello! If you're still deciding whether or not to attend, take a look at the schedule -- there's quite a lot of amazing information to share and people to meet and connect with. If you're at all interested in community indicators, this is the conference you need to attend.
