Sharing Your Success

This workshop examines best practices for measuring programs and sharing successes.

Workshop on Nonprofit Program Measurement

When measuring programs, what do we want to know? What information is available? How can we collect and analyze it? And how will we report it? This workshop provides participants with a basic introduction to nonprofit program accountability. We briefly explore different measurement frameworks and discuss some of the nuts and bolts of data collection. As a working session, attendees will spend time collaboratively developing measures for their own programs and exchange ideas about how to effectively share their results. (The workshop will be geared to those who are new to this topic. Participants are encouraged to bring their organizations' current outcomes reports.)
