Mission Statement Feedback Requested

In the meeting today (Sunday July 12), we had discussions about organization and a Mission statement for the Artisans of Houston group. Here is a suggestion.

Artisans of Houston is a group committed to furthering the cause of personally designed, handcrafted arts in the Houston area. We are small business owners promoting our individual businesses internally, externally, locally, and internationally. Success will be achieved through networking, advertising, making use of online resources, and organization within the group, with the goal of holding our own art shows.

Membership fees of $25 are planned to support the above goals.

We hope you will become an active, participating member of Artisans of Houston. We'd like any input you have to give on any point discussed above!

Discussion will be held at the meeting on Tuesday July 21 at 7 pm, and a consensus reached. Please attend, or reply to this discussion, to share your thoughts on this!

Kudos to the group who wrote the mission statement in just one afternoon! The amount of $25.00 seems quite reasonable.

Do think that there should be account book for its use, so that members will understand if additional funds are requested. Jo

I'm very much in favor of this mission statement. I think it's a sign that we're all wanting to move forward and make our Artisans of Houston group a name to be known! Hope to see more comments.

I do agree with the Mission Statement and the goals that support it.

In answer to Jo's question about the accounting of dues - we would definately want a person and an assistant (or co-treasurers) to keep the money and records of money coming in and money going out.

I agree that we're ready to move forward from our beginning fledgling group to a growing and successful Artisans of Houston, working to meet the goals listed with the Mission Statement.
