Vision/Mission Statement

Our current mission statement reads: "To advocate for public policy changes by reconnecting middle-class Vermonters to their government."

Question 1: Should we keep our mission statement as is? If not should we expand it?

Question 2: Should we have a separate vision statement?

Question 3: What is our vision for the future of Vermont and how do we incorporate that into our vision/mission statement?

Question 4: Are there specific benchmarks we can look at for measuring success?

    I agree. I think the original intent behind focusing on the middle-class was that it is an underrepresented group in Montpelier.

    I agree with George. The discussion needs to be inclusive.

    Increasing membership would be a good internal goal. Ideally our vision statement would include an indicator or measurement for progress. Perhaps something like median household income and cost of living indicators compared to the national or regional average. We talk about this broadly already in reference to prosperity.

    2) I would like to see a vision statement that takes us to a sustainable Vermont.
    4) I would use increase in membership and participation as the benchmark for success.

    Rather then focusing just on just the middle class I suggest we expand our mission to include ALL Vermonters
