Our vision is for the chieftaincy institution to play a stronger role in ensuring peace and unity among the people of Ghana and the realization of their aspirations for economic, social, cultural and political advancement.
Our mission is to build the capacity of the membership of the National House of Chiefs to promote peace, security, order and unity through the prompt, transparent and fair resolution of chieftaincy and communal disputes; and to ensure that chiefs are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to facilitate social cohesion and peace and to harness available human and natural resources to promote development in our communities.
