As a new year begins to unfold, we often find ourselves reflecting on our commitments and setting new goals. That process of reflection can be as powerful for organizations as it can for individuals. Strategic planning for the years ahead can help us to focus on what matters, creating the energy to move closer to our mission.

Is your organization a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) or considering becoming one? Soon, Minnesota PBCs will be filing their first Annual Benefit Reports and we want to make sure they are prepared!
You might think outreach and recruitment strategies are important for political activists, community organizers, and awareness campaigns. But they are incredibly important to evaluators, too. Why?
Here at The Improve Group, we know that many organizations do not have the resources to hire outside evaluators to carry out their evaluations, nor do they have an in-house evaluator. Helping organizations build their evaluation capacity fits well within our mission and values and is reflected in most of the work we do.
The American Evaluation Association’s 2015 Conference is approaching fast! Exemplary Evaluations in a Mulitcultural World, will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from November 9-14. This year’s conference holds distinct significance as evaluators from around the world will also be gathering to recognize and participate in the International Year of Evaluation.
Dani Rae Gorman joined The Improve Group through the American Evaluation Association's Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program (GEDI) in September, and will be with us through the school year. The GEDI Program provides opportunities to students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation.
