As you can probably guess, I spend a lot of time these days worrying about outcomes measurement for nonprofits; I also devote time to discussing this topic with experts and with nonprofit professionals.
As I talk to some of the most impressive mavens in this field I sometimes ask, “would you travel to Massachusetts at your own expense, to give a free day-long training on outcomes measurement to nonprofit professionals here?
Nothing ventured, nothing gained – am I right? (Or as my dear sister once put it, I am The Mouth That Knows No Fear.)
A few really stellar experts actually agreed to do it, if a training event could be arranged to suit their schedules and other reasonable needs. Of course, I am stunned, overwhelmed with gratitude. Never underestimate the kindness of mavens!
So now I turn to my nonprofit colleagues in Massachusetts, with another unscientific survey. I want to get a sense of who would be interested in day-long free training. This survey is for them. If you’re not a nonprofit professional based in Massachusetts, please do the honorable thing, and refrain from participating in this survey.
