Our March line-up features a practical look at writing performance measures, CEO Karen Beavor’s advice for identifying the trends that matter, and a profile of the HomeAid director who runs construction projects for other nonprofits – plus an advocacy call-to-action, upcoming events, training engagements, and funding opportunities.
