Mission

RAFI seeks to serve its diverse base of clientele successfully; helping clients achieve their goals and prosperity through excellence and the significant added value our assistance provides - and through meeting client deadlines and budgets – all within a context of using jurisdictional rules, regulations and codes as our friends - as we progress through each task and journey.

 

Vision

Through significant contributions to clients, communities and society, the planning and design professions, and through the protection of the fragile natural environment, RAFI makes life on Earth a better, healthier and safer Place where current and future generations can prosper universally.  To meet these challenges RAFI’s strategic goals are:

  • Advancing knowledge, skills and abilities associated with the roles and assistance RAFI offers to those the firm serves;

  • Building and facilitating long-lasting relationships and communications amongst broad and diverse communities of people, businesses, organizations and clients;

  • Preparing highly qualified, competent, experienced, innovative and motivated professionals to guide and direct the firm’s contributions and its futures; and,

  • Managing the firm’s operations, processes and accomplishments objectively to continuously improve Quality Assurance and Quality Control – through services to clients.

Values

Successfully serving RAFI clientele is our highest priority and value in seeking excellence.  We do this in concert with other professional associates in an open, engaging, transparent and collaborative environment - where sharing knowledge, expertise and wisdom is focused solely on producing successful client assignments.

  • Responsiveness and a sense of urgency is critical to addressing client needs effectively - as are open dialog, clear and straightforward communications;

  • Confidentiality is equally important; we’re committed to protecting clients’ privacy; and,

  • The use of academic research methodologies in tandem with technology and experience to extend scholarship - to uncover state-of-the art information as a foundation for discussions, evaluations and decision-making with clients. 

Advancing clients and communities to help make each stronger, more sustainable, effective, economically successful, and healthy, allows RAFI to share in greater opportunities for continuing success and prosperity.  As facilitators, this endeavor links needs, people and resources together, and provides:

 

  • Access to scholarly publications and information to members of RAFI’s communities with reliable resources as tools to expand knowledge, skills, and abilities in a variety of interest areas;

  • Two-way communications and community forums that link members with common interests together to increase access to broader and more diverse realms of discussions, thoughts and ideas; and,

  • As bridge-builders, RAFI promotes connectivity, networking and new partnerships between smaller communities and larger communities when mutual benefits exist. par

RAFI also serves as a community of highly experienced, skilled professionals, each recognized for their scholarly endeavors, creativity, leadership and accomplishments.  Each RAFI member participates in the decision-making process, guidance and directions the firm undertakes.

  • Each member is a major contributor towards achieving the firm’s mission, vision and in making our values exceptionally beneficial to everyone we serve;

  • Members as well are recognized for their unique identity, honesty, integrity, diligence and sense of responsibility towards clients and in protecting the health, safety and welfare of the greater public we serve; and,
