"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

The Measurement and Reporting Committee (MARC) is a committee of the MNCM Board of Directors with a broad membership of community stakeholders. The committee’s purpose is to recommend measurement priorities and specifications to the Board, and to recommend guiding principles and/or policies for MNCM’s public reporting of measures. The MARC is supported by measure development work groups established by MNCM staff at the direction of the MARC. Work groups are charged with recommending draft measurement specifications and data collection plans.

MNCM is very interested in recruiting new members, so a variety of community stakeholders are represented and have an opportunity to serve on this important committee.

This committee meets monthly. Members are required to attend and actively participate in at least 75 percent of meetings. In-person attendance is encouraged to facilitate the best group dynamic, and phone conference attendance is available. Each member serves a two-year term, and has a three-term limit. MARC members may also be asked to serve on a Measure Development Work Group.

Please email this application to Anne Snowden; MNCM Director of Performance Measurement, Validation and Reporting, at snowden@mncm.org by the close of business on Friday, April 14, 2017.

After the application nomination period has closed, MNCM staff will convene a committee to review nominations and appoint the new member with a goal to appoint the new member by the end of April, after which all nominees and the person selected as a new member will be notified.
