Tomorrow, Community Impact Specialist Tehrian Martin from United Way of the Mid-South and Eileen Rehberg from United Way of Chattanooga will share an overview of Community Issues Management (CIM) with the United Ways of Tennessee Board and Membership meeting in Nashville, TN.
Martin and Rehberg will show how CIM is a useful tool for local United Ways and other groups who make decisions based upon resources and needs. The CIM network collects information from a large number of sources, giving users the ability to tap into a variety of community data sets through one website.
Yesterday, Dave Skorupa (V.P. Communications, United Way of the Mid-South) was one of the featured speakers during a CIM collaborative webinar. Skorupa provided ideas and examples of how United Way uses blogs, printed materials and press releases to update the Memphis, TN area about CIM activities. (You can stay up to date with local CIM notices here.)
Next Monday, November 7, the CIM team will analyze local census data in an effort to provide the numbers behind recent headlines that “Memphis is the poorest metro in the nation.” To learn more about this informative and interesting session, visit our story about the meeting here.
