Guiding Principles in Action

We want to make a positive difference in the lives of our members and the Athens community!

Our employees' actions are guided by five Guiding Principles:

  • Integrity
  • Kindness & Respect
  • Collaboration
  • Delivery
  • Community

Employee Volunteer Program

Our staff members put these principles into action by volunteering in our community throughout the year.
