Ron,

I'm not sure but it sounds like what you are talking about with a "Group Goals" section sounds like it might be bylaws? Where you define how exactly the group will function or operate.

Here is an example:

Mission Statement

SPA is a non-profit corporation providing an informational conduit both between and among governing agencies and a widely dispersed community who visit the S. Valley and its Warm Springs. SPA's goal is protection, preservation and conservation of the valley to include geology, wildlife habitat, archeology, and a traditional human presence that emphasizes responsible individual freedom of choice. SPA will promote an atmosphere of welcome to all visitors while communicating the valley's traditional lifestyle to newcomers. It will represent the community to the National Park Service (NPS) and other governmental agencies by cultivating a spirit of cooperation and helpfulness intended to promote a mutually beneficial partnership.

They also have bylaws (many which don't apply to us):
ARTICLE I -- NAME
ARTICLE II -- OBJECTIVES
ARTICLE III -- SCOPE
ARTICLE IV -- MAINTENANCE
ARTICLE V - MEMBERSHIP
ARTICLE VI -- VOTING REQUIREMENTS
ARTICLE VII - MEMBERS' RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
ARTICLE VIII -- ELECTED DIRECTORS
ARTICLE IX -- COMMITTEES
ARTICLE X -- CONDUCT OF BUSINESS
ARTICLE XI -- TAX EXEMPT REQUIREMENTS
ARTICLE XII -- MEMBERSHIP NEWSLETTER & MAILING LIST
ARTICLE XIII -- RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
XIV -- PUBLICITY AND COMMERCIALIZATION
ARTICLE XV -- AMENDMENT OF BYLAWS

The mission statement broadly defines the group's goals and the bylaws define how those goals will be achieved. I feel the statements should be included but it is up to the group to decide. (Just trying to add my $ .02 ... or maybe $ .04 worth ;0)

I can bring a copy of the bylaws of this group or even e-mail you a copy if you'd like. Seems like some sound advice as a place for us to start.

What do the rest of you think?
