  • The Community Mediator: Introducing The NAFCM Clearinghouse
    will be encouraged to organically grow at its chosen pace and to its community ordained size and scope Real Time Collaboration Housed within and benefiting from the robust functionality of the Google Drive platform NAFCM program members can not only passively review Clearinghouse content they can also engage the platform to actively collaborate with colleagues in real time New documents can be created within the various Google Docs formats that allow colleagues to contribute content at the same time or in an ongoing fashion When housed within the Clearinghouse folder structure these new documents can be viewed commented upon or edited by the entire community or any subset the originator desires For example add your organization s guiding statements within the collaborative Community Mediation Mission Statements document which currently accepts live contributions from all those with Clearinghouse credentials This feature can be used for statewide center networks field wide project groups and many other collaborative purposes If you have questions or need assistance initiating a collaborative document to be housed within the Clearinghouse please feel free to contact us directly Structure Housing the entirety of the community mediation field behind a single portal is a decidedly ambitious undertaking Coherently organizing the continually expanding collection is decidedly ambitious again This organization requires accessibility comprehension extensibility flexibility and intuitiveness The resource categorization must resonate with hundreds of collaborators each of whom maintain corresponding yet wildly divergent file structures for their own local resources Ultimately while there is likely no single categorization scheme which is objectively superior to its many alternatives the thousands of resources populating the Clearinghouse require one to be imposed We hope our choice achieves the rigorous demands we placed upon ourselves and meets the high expectations of NAFCM s program members The framework chosen for the NAFCM Clearinghouse mirrors those found in several inclusive NAFCM publications and earlier though notably smaller resource collections It categorizes content with an eye toward its primary audience center administrators though should remain intuitive enough for researchers and other audiences as well The top level folder structure includes the following categories each of which are detailed more extensively on their respective Collection overviews 1 Structure Governance 2 Center Administration 3 Service Administration 4 Volunteer Administration 5 Community Engagement 6 Fund Development 7 Training 8 Evaluation Assessment 9 Research and 10 Special Collections Benefitting again from the flexibility of the Google Drive platform individual files and even entire sub folders contained within the top level Collection structure can be cross referenced where logically appropriate For example a sample volunteer evaluation tool could logically reside within either the Volunteer Administration or Evaluation Assessment Collections As one might reasonably search for such a tool in either of those categories it should ideally reside in both Thankfully the Google Drive platform allows this cross posting of unique files and folders without needless resource duplication or cluttering of the overall collection Where such cross posting is appropriate the scheme has been coordinated thusly When future cross referencing becomes necessary
