The Establishment of Our Purpose
The original concepts of mutual protection and aid that were the foundation of the formation of the SPMDTU must be respected and preserved as the organization moves forward in the 21st Century. Many of the reasons for the formation of the SPMDTU no longer are concerns for current members. The SPMDTU has recently experienced a period of inactivity from some of the Concilios Locales and that has prompted the formation of a committee to examine the roles of the Concilio Superior and the Concilio Locales to develop a Statement of Purpose for La Sociedad. Members of this committee include:
Hmo. Antonio Esquibel, Concilio #7, Denver
Hmo. Félix López, Concilio #1, Antonito
Hmo. Robert Martínez, Concilio #19, Alamosa
Hmo. Manuel Salazar, Concilio #7, Denver
Hmo. Jerry Romero, Concilio #57, Nambé
Hmo. Anselmo Valerio, Concilio #18, Ranchos de Taos
Hmo. Baudilio Baca, Concilio #57, Nambé
Hmo. Richard de Olivas y Córdova, Concilio #31, Chama
Concilio #15, Placitas was not represented.
A survey of members was distributed in order to solicit opinions as to the role of the Concilio Superior and the Concilios Locales. Based on the information that was generated from the survey, members of the committee began discussing options for the Statement of Purpose. After much discussion, the committee identified four areas of focus for the Statement of Purpose. Each of these areas have their own unique elements or potential activities that help to define emphasis for each identified purpose.
