GUIDING PRINCIPALS

WE CULTIVATE RELATIONSHIPS.
A multitude of different people and organizations can work together to create and spread solutions. We strive to work in an open, respectful, non-partisan way that meets people where they are, builds trust, and has meaningful impact.

WE SEEK CREATIVE SOLUTIONS.
Solutions that are place-based and practical help us spring into action. We think and plan, try it out, learn from the experience, apply fixes, try it out again and the cycle continues.

WE STRIVE FOR CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT.
We adapt to changing community needs and preferences, markets, regulations, and the environment. We measure and evaluate our activities against our goals consistently.

WE FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE.
Engaging and inspiring people creates positive change. We promote what we stand for over what we are against.

WE HAVE FUN.
Our work may sometimes be challenging, but keeping a sense of humor and enjoying the experience is critical for success. We are always aiming to “make it a better party!”
