Core Values

We believe we have an obligation to our region that is larger than our organization, our businesses and ourselves. In 2013, during the organization’s annual board retreat, members developed the following list of core values based upon the current mission statement:

Excellence – we don’t just say we’re good, we continually work to be better

Leadership – we lead by example, we lead with a vision for a better future for all

Inclusion – we believe everyone has a voice and understand there are different perspectives

Innovation – we are creative, we experiment and take risks to advance our organization and region

Fun – we love to laugh, to make others smile and to spread goodwill in our region
