I’m happy to report that my transportation study is essentially complete. I reviewed all of the information – and my related recommendations – with the Homeless Families Foundation’s executive director on Monday. And I’ll be working to create an abbreviated presentation for the management team here as well as for the Columbus Foundation’s closing luncheon, which is next Friday. (Where has the summer gone??)
Over the past few days, I’ve been working on new projects for HFF. A few of them are related to enhanced reporting tools that can provide increased visibility for board members and for staff. I’m providing recommendations on the “trend report” which provides quarterly measurement of key goals and important outcomes. I’m hoping to create a few different user-friendly templates, which will automatically populate summary reporting, graphs, etc (provided that a minimal amount of monthly data is entered). I have prior work experience in reporting and data analysis, so this type of work is right up my alley!
And of course this is another week full of professional development opportunities… I’m attending this afternoon’s Grant Professionals Association meeting as well as tomorrow’s presentation at the Columbus Foundation.
For any readers who are considering applying for a Summer Fellowship with the Columbus Foundation… This is a great opportunity! Don’t pass it up!
