I know the metrics discussion was kinda all over the place.  I did also ask Nicole if there are metrics on how we are doing this year compared to last year at this time.  Whether we are up or down in # of participants but if Nicole can get the information about $ amount, that would be interesting to compare too.   I'm kinda a stats man, I spent a few years developing custom reports for a call centre :)

Hi everyone - I was able to find some numbers from last year in our system which provides a snapshot of where we were in July, August and September of last year. Those are the only ones that were saved unfortunately. Attached is a file that provides you with the donations and number of participants at various times throughout this three month period, and where we sit this year as of July 19th. I'll continue to populate this as we go and provide you with updates.


I'm also in the process of putting together a document that looks at participants from last year vs. those currently signed up. It appears we have many new participants (yay!) but as you will notice by the number of participants currently registered, we are waiting for many of our usual suspects to come back - including some of you! I've identified our top fundraisers from 2015 and we'll be trying to reach out to these individuals to ensure they sign up again, and also see if they might be interested in joining the Guild. As we don't have e-mails, only first and last names, I'll be relying on all of you to take a look at the names and see if you know anyone.
