“J-U-B’s core purpose is ‘Helping each other create better communities.’ We developed that purpose statement through engagement with our employees about what they believe about J-U-B’s mission and culture. I think J-U-B’s core purpose resonates well with AIC. Helping each other, as collaborators on programs and projects, to make Idaho’s communities better for the future. We are proud of J-U-B’s long-standing relationship with AIC toward that goal.” –Tim Haener, Excerpt from General Session Remarks
