The board of directors, key volunteers, and Operations Manager updated C4C’s mission, vision, and values. They can be read below and at https://www.c4community.org/about/ and https://www.c4community.org/.
The work took place Saturday December 1st with a professional facilitator, Carey Mason, of The Alternative Board.
Board President, Rob Andrew, said “having formed in response to the 2013 floods, it was time to adapt to a role that continues to serve our community going forward.”
Andrew added, “I’m thankful we could bring in a professional like Carey Mason who did a great job and who made it possible for our organization to do the hard work of defining a mission, vision, and values all of which drive everything we do.”
Andrew concluded, “this language helps guide our Operations Manager who has been directed to summarize and communicate C4C’s work especially as we go into our main fundraiser, Crank It Forward, in May.”
