Alumni members are encouraged to uphold the purpose of Polk Vision and through their actions have a positive impact on the economic health, leadership and quality of life in the community.

We truly believe:

  • The Leadership Polk experience should be the beginning of a journey of intensified awareness, interest, concern, and pride of our communities.
  • That membership in the Alumni Association will continue to assist you in advancing your goals and objectives as an investment for professional, civic, and personal development.
  • Through relationships with colleagues who share similar involvement, commitment, and passion, Alumni will discover avenues for Polk County to become an even greater place to live, learn, work, and play.

Leadership Polk is about creating and building relationships with other leaders in the region, immersing yourself in Polk County’s unique assets, and learning more about yourself, your peers and the place we all call home. In a nutshell, Leadership Polk is about each of us and how we can work collaboratively to engage and grow as we enhance Polk County and its future.

The Alumni Association is committed to remaining a strong and relevant resource for its members and to advancing the work of  Polk Vision. To this end, the Alumni Steering  Committee assembled a group of 20 key stakeholders for an afternoon of reflection and rich conversation. The practical advice, guidance,  and insight gained from this session will guide the Alumni Association as it moves forward in fostering deeper relationships and higher levels  of engagement within the Association and the broader community.
