The New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism adopted its by-laws in September of 1997. In Article I of these by-laws, the Commission identified its mission and purpose. This mission and purpose statement is the foundation on which the Commission’s role is built. The statement guides its efforts in serving all citizens of New Mexico.
“The Commission’s mission is to engage citizens of New Mexico of all ages and backgrounds in community based service; such service will address New Mexico’s human, educational, environmental, public safety, health, housing and other needs to achieve direct and beneficial results.
The Commission has for its purpose the promotion and guidance of Corporation for National Service grant expenditures in a judicious and reasonable manner, consistent with pertinent provisions of federal law and regulation.
