The first step is to being to consider what you value as a council. Core values describe what the members of your council believe in. They are the fundamental principles that guide your council's work.
Brainstorm a list of what your council values. Then, as a group, try to reach consensus on at least 3 and no more than 5 values.
A mission statement encapsulates your council's purpose for being. It concentrates on the present; it defines the member, critical processes and it informs you about the desired level of performance.
Your council's mission statement should reflect that of ILA and KSRA. Work together to draft a new mission statement for your council.
