Our Organizational Values
The RC&D has committed to these values as the foundation of our organization. Our values provide the framework for our work within the community, for our relationships with others, and ultimately, as the sustaining qualities for healthy, vibrant communities.
Service to the community
We exist to serve the community, not to further our own agendas.
We believe that collaborative action is the route to positive change.
When we strive for excellence, we contribute our best talents to the community.
Diverse teams, from families to ecosystems, are more resilient and high-performing.
For a community, every member has the right to be welcomed and valued, to have his or her ideas and observations respected, to be involved in decisions that affect his or her life and to contribute to the community.
When we act with honesty, trust and respect, we honor ourselves and others.
Beautiful surroundings and harmonious relationships inspire people to positive intentions and actions at work, at play, at home, and in our natural environment.
