Let me start by saying it is really REALLY hot in Palm Springs. I'm not sure my brain can actually function in this type of heat. I am now more convinced than ever that Vancouver is, actually, heaven on earth. At least you can walk outside during the day, anyway. But other than that, I am enjoying the annual Alliance Conference very much, though it's just getting going.

Just a quick entry to let everyone know that I'll be blogging at the Alliance for Nonprofit Management Conference that takes place July 15-17 in Palm Springs. The Alliance is a US-based association for organizations and consultants that build capacity in the not-for-profit sector. I'm one of very few Canadian attendees, so I'll try and represent!

In June, Stats Canada released the Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (CSGVP). Side note: as a reformed American, I just love the name of this federal office, like it’s “all stats on all subjects all the time”. A smorgasbord of information – love it! I don’t know if the US has one, but they should.
