Integrating Community Indicators and Performance Measures to Enhance Goverance and Citizen Engagement

Published: 08/04/2010

August 4th, 2010. Over the last five years there has been a growing awareness of the need to integrate or link community indicators and performance measurement efforts at the community level to better assess the progress of improving the quality of life of communities and to better engage the public, community groups and other key stakeholders in the development and use of community indicators and performance measures used by governmental and non-profit organizations.
This webinar presented recent work done by the Community Indicators Consortium regarding CI-PM integration, highlighted why CI-PM integration is important and illustrated some of the promising practices being used for CI-PM Integration. Specifically, the speakers discussed the following:

  • Why community indicators and organizations' (governments and nonprofits) performance measures should be integrated,
  • What a descriptive model of CI-PM integration is and how it can be used, and
  • Examples of communities where community indicators-performance measures integration is happening
