AIM International Core Values

These core values are essential to the ethos and culture of AIM International. The Core Values are not “governing policies”, however, and therefore are not part of the constitution. The Core Values are included as part of the AIM International Member Handbook, and are included here as an appendix to the Constitution. The desire is for members and those exploring a relationship with AIM International to clearly see AIM’s anchor points.
