She has served in numerous committee roles, as Board vice-president, and ultimately as Board president. Currently, she is the chairperson of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee for the past 2+ years.

Commissioner Poling has been active in many major impacts that have occurred in the Park District, including the 2016 passing of a referendum to ultimately build and open the Prairie Activity & Recreation Center in 2019.
