Proposed Organizational Standards and
Delivered to OCS on July 10, 2013
The 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.

NEW REALITY CHECK
Peter Kilde, Chair
Partnership Strategic Initiatives Task Force
The New Reality Initiative Spreads its Wings - Part 1: Preparing for the Flight | August 15, 2014
I'm back. Some of you may recall that the New Reality Check checked
out about two months ago in the face of a very busy summer for yours
truly, the author. Much of the busy-ness had to do with the most
ambitious undertaking yet for the Partnership's New Reality Initiative: a
collaborative effort of five national and international organizations
and our host, the Johnson Foundation at Wingspread, instigated also by
yours truly on behalf of the Partnership, to gather foundation
leadership for an in-depth interaction with the interrelated suite of
issues we call the New Reality.
It was a remarkable event, and its impact is already beginning to reach
across the nation. That said, much of what this gathering will produce
is not yet known, and may never be fully knowable. What is clear is
that this event has at least developed legs, and maybe even wings, and
is on the move. To help the readers of this blog to get a sense of what
it was like to participate in "Navigating the New Reality of Economy,
Energy and Environment - A Workshop for Philanthropic Leaders," I will
share first the short summary reading and detailed agenda participants
received in preparation for their coming to Wingspread. In time, as
these things are ready, I will also share the annotated PowerPoint
presentations given by the Institute for Integrated Economic Research
(IIER) and by me, as well as the final report being drafted for release
by the Johnson Foundation.
Please send your responses to Peter Kilde for posting.
