I took a few minutes to think about what it meant. Being a relatively new member, I would tend to look to something like this to get an idea of the club's priorities:
Provide the radio amateurs of western Loudoun County - this defines, arguably, the target club membership. It could be used in deciding where to prioritize the provision of assistance, where meetings are held, deciding on where to hold future Field Days, where to locate a new repeater, etc. It limits presence to the local area (as opposed to some clubs which are national organizations.)
A forum to interact - providing a forum is declared here as a core part of the mission. The monthly meeting, the breakfast gathering, the many LARG nets and this email reflector clearly show appreciation of this part of the mission. It also suggests values like transparency and involvement of all members rather than just a few in discussions and decision-making, though that kind of consensus is not explicitly stated in the mission.
Different facets of amateur radio - as evidenced by the wide variety of activities LARG members participate in; it suggests that the group prefers to participate broadly in amateur radio activities rather then focus heavily on a specific area (for example, a club that revolves singularly around ARES, a repeater, digital modes, or CW operation)
Provide service - recognizes outreach as a core part of LARG's mission
To the public - focuses outreach to the public in general rather than focusing too much on any particular agency or organization
As defined by the Federal Communications Commission - limits scope of what kind of service can be provided; focuses service on 97.1.a, which reads in part, "as a voluntary noncommercial communication service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications." Clearly LARG regularly performs this mission with diverse comm support activities, from bike rides to events in Loudoun towns to local disaster training events.
Supports the recruitment and training of Radio Amateurs - makes recruitment and training a core part of LARG's mission
Educational activities - places emphasis on educational activities as a method for accomplishing the mission
You could almost describe the core mission as having three pillars: camaraderie (community), service, and training.
Camaraderie, in that the forums and breadth of activities are inclusive and promote the sense of community of the local hams;
Service, which is not limited to any particular area but the public in general with respect what hams can do;
Education, in that we try to bring in new hams through training and better ourselves.
Who wrote the mission statement? It is very good. I keep liking LARG more and more.
