Annual Impact Summit
The annual CIC Impact Summit brings together indicator practitioners, think tank analysts, academics, funders, and data providers and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and the development of effective indicators. The next Impact Summit, CIC’s 14th international conference, will be held in Minneapolis, MN in October.
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 and indicator resources available anywhere. 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.
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.
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. In addition, CIC offers a member-only discussion platform.
