Creating a Community with a Common Vision was the theme behind this year’s New Jersey League of Municipalities (NJLM) Annual Conference, and as a first-time exhibitor, Revelstone was excited not only to participate but also to offer a solution for local governments that tied directly into this messaging.
On November 15th-17th over 10,000 attendees gathered down in Atlantic City for what is considered to be the largest gathering of public officials in New Jersey. Over this three-day event, the NJLM hosted educational panels, clinics and workshops while commercial, government and association exhibits displayed the latest products and services for municipal government. The Revelstone team had the opportunity to participate in these sessions, tour the exhibit floor and network with new and familiar faces.
As an exhibitor, our goal was to communicate how Revelstone is helping local governments operate more efficiently. Through our innovative performance management solution, Compass, we are enabling local governments to track their own performance data, benchmark against peers and learn from each other to improve.
We believe that measuring how a town is performing is only the first step to attaining improvements throughout a community. The “common vision” needs to not only look at how one town is performing, but also actively comparing it to peer-towns to learn what is working, what can be done differently and then to improve upon those areas. Through sharing, town managers across the nation can create a community of performance management strategies and best practices that lead to smarter decision-making and overall improvements they take back to their own communities.
Revelstone is thankful to have had the opportunity to participate in this year’s conference and we want to also thank those of you who were able to stop by our booth. We invite you to share your thoughts here about the sessions, exhibit hall and the overall event. To those who didn’t have a chance to attend, we also invite you to share your thoughts on performance management and how you think it can help towns can learn from each other.
To learn more about how you can create a common vision in your community with Revelstone and Compass, join us for our 30-minute webinar, Dispelling the Myths of Performance Management in Local Governments, on December 13, 2011 4:00pm – 4:30pm ET.
We look forward to hearing from you and possibly seeing you at next year’s event!
