New Century CIL Blog Reboot

by Michele Martin on October 13, 2014

Hi Everyone–I’m Michele Martin and I’ll be taking over the New Century CIL Blog from Richard Petty. I’ve been working with the ILRU and CILs since 2009 and have had the privilege of meeting a number of you at various conferences and training sessions. Now I have the opportunity to take the lead on the New Century blog and I’m looking forward to it!

In this transitional period, it seemed like a good time to step back and do a small reboot on the blog, looking at where I can bring you resources and add value to your work. In the months ahead, we’ll be focusing on a few key areas:

  • Resources to help you recruit and train Board members and manage their work more effectively to achieve your CIL’s goals.
  • Information and resources to help you create the infrastructure and culture necessary to grow your CIL and adapt to an increasingly uncertain economy.

We’ll also continue to bring you general resource links in areas such as leadership, productivity, management, etc.

Please feel free to leave a comment on this post to let me know the areas that interest you most and where you can use help and guidance. You can also reach me by email at
