Proposed Organizational Standards and Implementation Framework
Delivered to OCS on July 10, 2013



orgstandards-coverThe Partnership is pleased to announce that the Proposed Organizational Standards and Implementation Framework was delivered to the Office of Community Services on July 10, 2013.  Thank you to the Community Action Network for your time and efforts that fed into this process. 
As we state in the final document, “The process of creating the Standards has been a national undertaking of the Community Action Network, on a scale not seen since the Monitoring and Assessment Task Force in the mid-1990s. Thanks to improved internet and video technology, the Standards project has reached more members of the Network and allowed them to participate more fully than in past national efforts. The Network’s investment of time and energy has been enormous, when seen in light of the still record levels of consumer and community needs, as well as funding cuts.” 
The work of the CSBG Working Group has been tremendous and we thank them for the numerous hours and tireless dedication to this work.

The New Reality Initiative Spreads its Wings - Part 2: Graphic Language | September 2, 2014

graph9-2-14As promised in the last post, I am continuing to share what was presented and what transpired this past July at the "Navigating the New Reality of Economy, Energy and Environment" conference held at the Johnson Foundation's Wingspread facility in Racine, Wisconsin.  To keep the amount of information somewhat manageable, this week I am only attaching one document; an annotated PDF of two of the three presentations made by the Institute for Integrated Economic Research (IIER). 


Please send your responses to Peter Kilde for posting.
