For those of you experiencing Pollen for the first time, here’s a quick overview of who we are: “Pollen is a community comprised of civic-minded connectors who share ideas, career and civic engagement opportunities and peer-to-peer recognition to create positive impact and personal and professional growth for its members.” Pollen volume 1 was shared with several hundred members on December 4, 2009.
