And this is my first blog… I am very excited to be here and have found so many interesting opportunities to learn about JCC mission and JCCA opportunities for learning. I would like to see more time for our adult group to have meetings of the minds for a chance to exchange specific information. Because I am new to my position and my position itself is new, I was hoping to get some specific advice and input for program ideas. As part of the adult directorship in Asheville, I manage newcomers, volunteers, young adults, active adults, a senior day club, community outreach, cultural events, health and wellness (we have no fitness center) and am looking for measurement and outcomes information. I tried for the benchmarking information but it was more JCC oriented than program. I am wondering what others are using so that I dont have to start from the “git go”. I have also found it a bit difficult to some of this informaiton of the JCCA site as I have put in tag words such as volunteers, newcomers, measurements, outcomes, etc with no hits. I am really enjoying meeting other adult directors from around the country to see that we all share some of the same strenghts and wrestle with the same issues. Thank you for this opportunity!
