One of Association Forum's Core Values is to be a Welcoming Environment™: We
are a welcoming environment that actively seeks to enhance the larger
community by recognizing the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
We will make everyone who interacts with us feel welcomed, represented,
engaged, inspired and empowered.
The environment we create communicates our beliefs about the people
we serve. Association Forum has made a commitment to building a
Welcoming Environment™ (WE) in our community and to equipping members
with the tools that they need to build a WE at their association.
Association Forum’s value and wisdom draws upon and reflects the
population we serve, and that which our members serve.
Welcoming Environment™ is defined as the creation of a
sense of belonging and connectedness that engages individuals in an
authentic manner in which uniqueness is valued, respected and supported
through opportunities and interaction.
A Welcoming Environment™ drives deeper engagement and
increased participation with the Association and will ultimately
increase revenue and build sustainable relationships.
