Trine Bech presents Results Based Accountability 101 at the Vermont Nonprofit Conference 2013 held at Lake Morey Resort on March 21st. Find more information on the Conference.

Results Based Accountability ™ provides nonprofit organizations with a powerful, practical way to measure impact, manage performance, build partnerships and tell your story in ways that strengthen your organization, increase sustainability and improve community well-being. The workshop features:

  • Overview of the RBA framework,
  • Models of the five steps for developing Performance Measures, and,
  • Examples for “turning the curve” on Program Accountability.

RBA is outlined in “Trying Hard is Not Good Enough” and pioneered by Mark Friedman. RBA was first adopted in Vermont more than a decade ago, under the leadership of Con Hogan and the Vermont Agency of Human Services and by the United Way of Chittenden County–among others. Currently, Benchmarks for a Better Vermont is implementing a federal grant to increase the number of nonprofits using the RBA model and to connect them with policy makers to “turn the curve” on pressing community challenges.

Presenter: Trine Bech, Esq., Executive Director/ Vermont Parent Representation Center, Inc.

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
