3 Insights from This Episode:
Although your coalition knows what you are trying to do to improve your community, it's easy to lose sight of this when dealing with the day-to-day hassles that plague all coalitions. Your vision and mission statements help members remember what is important as you go about doing your daily work.
When your vision and mission statements are easily visible (for example, if they are on the letterhead of your stationary), people can learn about your coalition without having to work hard for the information. Then, those with common interests can take the time necessary to learn more. Clearly, this can be very helpful when you are recruiting other people and coalitions to join in your effort.
