Vision vs. Mission Statement?
Perhaps you're wondering what the difference is and why an organization's vision statement is completely different than a mission statement. A vision is ambitious, far-reaching, and stretches the boundaries to achieve something amazing. It's how you envision your organization in the future. Your carefully-crafted vision inspires your leaders, members, and partners to pitch in and together accomplish impactful goals. NAREB Realtist vision of 2Mn5 (two million new Black homeowners in five years) is a wonderful example. A mission statement, on the other hand, explains what your organization does. "Reimagining the Dream of Homeownership through Advocacy, Activism, and Action" succinctly describes the mission of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers. Our mission is what we DO now, while our vision is what we aspire to BECOME or ACCOMPLISH in the future.
