The Polk County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to introduce their 2022 Diplomat team. The Diplomats are Chamber member liaisons, interacting with fellow members and potential members, celebrating and encouraging member growth and prosperity, while also serving as an additional resource and communication link between the Chamber, members, and our community. Diplomats have an opportunity to form new business connections, expand their network, and raise the recognition of themselves as individuals and that of their associated business.
In 2022, the Diplomat program is very excited to expand with Diplomats from the Business program in each of our county high schools. Partnering with the school system is imperative to the growth of our business community, and serving as a Diplomat is an excellent opportunity for students to interact with local business leaders, attend functions, make contacts, and begin to build their own network for future. Student Diplomats were selected on the basis of teacher and school administration recommendations. They are currently in their junior year, meaning they will be able to participate for all of 2022.
