2022 was an exciting year for La Cheim!

 

Our team successfully created a new mission statement to take our agency forward.  Further, we created a vision statement, value statements, and strategic plan, which you can review below.

 

We also created a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement, which can be found on our Careers page.
