Core Values

Affinity: Affinity is the positive feeling of knowing who you are and what you value. It is appreciating that you are a part of something great. The CCAA believes our affinity embraces the depth of our rich history, the significance of our enduring traditions and the success of our achievements.

Civility & Respect: Civility and respect are character traits exemplified through integrity, dignity and compassion. The CCAA believes that civility and respect require a commitment to diversity, leadership and common courtesy.

Courage: Courage is the mental and moral fortitude to stand up to, persevere through and overcome challenges. The CCAA believes courage requires dedication, the ability to adapt to change and the desire to succeed.

Excellence: Excellence is striving to succeed and achieving it through integrity, self-determination and drive while never fearing the risk of failure. The CCAA believes that excellence is within the reach of everyone with the courage and willingness to live it.

Honor: Honor is a reflection of honesty, fairness and integrity. It is the basis for the continued execution of civility and respect, courage, excellence and affinity. The CCAA believes honor is earned through trust and ethical conduct.
