The vision statement helps to express the association’s priorities and principles. What is achievable and what the association aspires to is described in the vision. A vision must answer questions such as: what are the core principles of the organization, what is the justification for Vancouver Speech Therapy, how does it make a significant difference, and what initiatives are worth undertaking? The vision of an organization must transcend the established leadership.
The mission deals with the organization’s behavior and the current situation and provides an organization with guidance, and is the basis for all preparation. It is the starting point and needs to be practical for everyone. Typically, the mission describes the organization’s intent, acknowledges the stakeholders, indicates their needs, and implies the image the organization wants to project.
