They are a group of individuals with a strong spirit of cooperation who work toward a common goal of maintaining the core values of the organization:

  • Integrity – We will hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards

  • Accountability – We will monitor our actions, celebrate our successes and commit to continuous improvement

People on this team work hard and are very supportive of one another. Also, everyone has a great sense
of humor.
