I'm looking for blogs / other social media outlets where folks are talking about performance measurement / management in the nonprofit sector. Thanks!
I didn't know this group existed! - Shevonne
It's been dead for awhile I guess! - Jason
Also, any blogs/sites you go to for nonprofit performance measurement appreciated :) - Jason
oh yes! I love Beth for tech/social media stuff... but primarily interested (right now) on general performance measurement of outcomes in nonprofit sector (non tech related). - Jason

2010 National Conference on Volunteering and Service: Now Accepting Presenter Proposals. We are now accepting proposals for presenters for immersion learning sessions, workshops and forums at the 2010 National Conference on Volunteering and Service. Please visit www.volunteeringandservice.org for more information and to submit your proposal today!...
I need to volunteer more. - Derrick
Volunteering is fun. I volunteer with the library technology courses - most of them with seniors. For Christmas, I'll be volunteering with Family Services to deliver Christmas hampers - also to seniors. - Nathalie
Do it! www.serve.gov for volunteer opportunities in your area. Also, I would recommend thinking about HOW you volunteer. When I was younger I used to do park clean ups and things like that. Now I tend to do more skilled based volunteering - I sit on the board of a nonprofit and do consulting for nonprofits on areas where I have expertise. - Jason
I was thinking more in line with public libraries here in Los Angeles. I submitted something online but I haven't heard back from them. I should maybe just GO to a library and find out more info there. - Derrick
Also, if anybody has expertise in technology / social media and wants to present at the conferece submit a proposal. I'll be reviewing everything we get in from those categories. There will be 5,000k + nonprofit attendees - so it's good exposure. Also, it's in NEW YORK CITY! - Jason
Derrick, sometimes nonprofits aren't the best at accepting volunteers (i.e. if you submitted something online they should get back to you!), but keep on trying! - Jason
Do the conference cover expenses for presenters? What about honorariums? MPOW has minimal cash to send me places to present. - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
Maurice, looking at the presenter agreement/information, it doesn't look like that's the case - looks as if presenters are responsible for costs. Which means I'm unlikely to submit, much as I'd like to. I struggle enough with paying for conferences in librarianship. - ellbeecee
Unfortunately, no. There is discounted registration fee for presenters though. I have always felt we should offer more to presenters, but not everyone is on board yet. Last year we had Marnie Webb from TechSoup and Holly Ross from NTEN and Laura Norvig from ETR Associates do a really great social media session for us. - Jason
Hey, Jason, I already contacted Holly and she wants to do something again this year so let's talk before the submission deadline. We're thinking a series of hands-on sessions: 1) Listening with RSS Readers 2) Storytelling with blogs 3) Generating Buzz with Twitter 4) Recruiting volunteers and supporters with Facebook. Maybe CCI could do 3 and 4 and Holly and I could do 1 and 2. EDIT:... more... - Laura Norvig
Laura - sounds great let's talk either tomorrow or Monday. - Jason from iPhone
bumping... if anybody has proposals to submit - the Deadline is Dec. 11. - Jason

Certain nonprofits have been doing this trying to get me to follow them, they unfollow then follow me again, hoping I'll follow them this time. Poor marketing in my opinion. - Christine Dattilo
