Mission & Vision

Words are important. An organization needs to have a purpose; a clear and unambiguous mission to justify its existence. It also needs a vision of its future – something to strive for so that it can achieve its potential.

CPN has crafted both a Mission and a Vision that guide all of its organizational decisions.
