SSA seeks feedback on mission statement


Vineyarders will have a chance to give feedback on what they think the Steamship Authority’s mission statement should say.

In a press release, Sean Driscoll, a spokesman for the SSA, says a dedicated page has been created to receive feedback — — on

its website where those seeking to provide comment can read about the last mission statement, which was developed in 1994 but never fully implemented, as well as answer some questions designed to elicit feedback to guide the mission statement project team.

The SSA will also be directly soliciting feedback from elected officials and community members in its five port communities, including a meeting scheduled for Wednesday, July 24, from 2 to 4 pm, at Tisbury EMS Building, 215 Spring St., Vineyard Haven.

The deadline for submitting feedback is August 23. The mission statement project team anticipates delivering drafts to the port council and board at their September meetings. Developing a mission statement was one of 10 recommendations made by the independent consultant.
