As mentioned last week, for the December 11 issue ---our last one this year -- we will be running a year in review and a looking forward piece. We invite you to contribute your thoughts on the following: 1. What were the most significant developments over the past year in health promotion / public health in Ontario across the country or internationally? and 2. What implications will these developments have over the next year?

We will be accepting contributions until December 1; just email us at!

This week, we have a feature article from Kevin H. Johnson, "Performance Management of Volunteers In the Nonprofit Sector," that summarizes a study examining the effect of high performance work practices on the performance of volunteers in nonprofit organizations.

We always welcome your feedback on our feature articles--including topics you'd like to see--news about old colleagues and new colleagues, and comments on our newsletter and searchable database of health promotion information. Read our complete submission guidelines at and write to
