PCMS Circle of Friend Levels

 


 

Polk County Medical Society - Circle of Friends Logo

 


The Circle of Friends program is an exciting member service. It allows medical-related businesses to connect directly with physicians in the Polk and Warren County areas. Businesses, such as yours, can support local physicians by being members of the PCMS Circle of Friends, and in turn for your continued support, are offered special beneficial programs.

 

Businesses that have shown continuous support or interest in the society are encouraged to sign up for this program. A few amenities include publication in the Bulletin, broadcast faxes, complimentary directories, and much more. Participants will be able to attend events, giving businesses a chance to meet with doctors one-on-one. Recognition of the Circle of Friends sponsors will be given through signs, publications and personal recognition by the President of PCMS. 

 

Physicians are encouraged to give feedback on Circle of Friends businesses throughout the year. Upon renewal of your contract, PCMS will take into consideration the thoughts and suggestions of their physicians. 

 

Four levels of sponsorship are available to allow for a variety of businesses to be able to participate. They are the Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze levels.

 

Contact the Polk County Medical Society at pcms@pcms.org or call 515-288-0172
for additional information on joining PCMS Circle of Friends.
