The CIC Toolbox Helps Indicator Projects Succeed

The Community Indicator Consortium supports communities’ efforts to improve quality of life. Since 2005, CIC has provided resources and tools to help communities and practitioners advance the practice and effective use of community indicators.

Educational Opportunities, such as Webinars

CIC offers a host of educational opportunities, including webinars, on key topics of interest to indicator practitioners. In the past, topics have included tools for impact, visualization, equity, and performance measures. Past webinars are available for members to view any time.


The CIC website offers the most comprehensive list of indicator projects available anywhere.  Indicator resources include a comprehensive library of community indicator research and articles.  Those resources make it easier for cash- and resource-strapped organizations to limit the exploratory phase of their projects and move quicker to delivering impactful products to the community.

Impact Awards

Each year, CIC identifies community indicator projects around the World that best demonstrate the power of indicators to drive positive community change. Those projects provide guidance to the entire field on the many positive directions toward which it can strive.

Upcoming Events

CIC scours the web to identify and share information on events that would benefit community indicator projects.

Discussion Boards

Through its LinkedIn page and website, CIC offers a platform for peer-to-peer interactions, allowing for timely discussions and resolution of technical issues or organizational problems, as well as the sharing of innovations, as they arise.  A discussion platform will also be available on this website.

Job Board

Our job board identifies jobs directly or tangentially in the field of community indicators.
