AMBA Values

  • RESPECT unity
  • We value team over individual; how we get things done is as important as what we achieve. We share our diverse strengths, talents and resources to achieve goals together. Our success is driven by building relationships, breaking down barriers and connecting across clubs, states and communities.
  • IMAGINE possibilities
  • We have the courage and curiosity to challenge, innovate and take on new opportunities. Adopting a growth mindset and positively working through change means success for our volunteers, our organisation and our families.
  • HONOUR integrity
  • We act with integrity and take ownership for the quality of our individual work, but also take pride in what we deliver as a team. Our focus is on a successful outcome for all. When things don’t go as planned we proactively use it as an opportunity to learn and shift direction.
  • INSPIRE action
  • We value passion, commitment and enthusiasm for our cause. We believe that seeking and giving feedback are essential for us to learn; we want to inspire each other to achieve great things. Transparency and being candid will enable us to grow as individuals and become a stronger organisation.
