At our Semi-Annual Membership Meeting in June, the membership adopted new mission, vision, and purpose statements that will guide our work into the future.
At the Semi-Annual Membership Meeting, we also discussed a draft values statement. ESDA now seeks community stakeholders input to ensure the values statement reflects the highest aspirations of the neighborhood and the organization.
Based on your input, our Board of Directors will redraft the values statement at its October 15 and November 19 board meetings, and then the membership will vote on the final statement
Here are the recently adopted mission, vision, and purpose statements:
Solidifying ESDA's Values
Based on the discussion at the Semi-Annual Membership Meeting, the draft values statement has been updated to the following:
We want our values to represent the highest aspirations of the neighborhood and reflect the broad spectrum of interests in our community. Please complete a short survey so we can get it right.
We will take community input through October, and then redraft the values statement based on your feedback. The ESDA Board of Directors will present an updated draft for the membership's consideration at the ESDA's Annual Membership Meeting in December.
