Call for Requests for Proposals
Call for Presentation Proposals: The conference will have five learning tracks, each addressing different aspects of the conference theme. We are soliciting proposals for two of the tracks, Sharing Lessons Learned and Bridging Community Indicators and Government Performance Measures. The proposal guidelines and deadlines are the same for each.
Sharing Lessons Learned Track: We are particularly keen on receiving proposals dealing with any (or combination) of aspects dealing with the planning, development, dissemination, and use of community indicators project reports. The focus here is "lessons learned." If you have a well-developed case that you would like to share with other community indicator efforts, then please send your proposal to either Joe Sirgy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Alex Michalos (email@example.com).
Bridging Community Indicators and Government Performance Measures Track: In this track, we are looking for effective and innovative practices that bring together community indicators and government performance measures. The focus of this track is on building and sustaining connections between the community and government. Please send your proposal to Chantal Stevens (Chantal@sustainableseattle.org).
