Our mission is to transform Northern Kentucky by uniting and mobilizing community leaders around initiatives that produce tangible, measurable results.

About US

We are the Northern Kentucky Regional Alliance, an organization comprised of regional leaders committed to uniting and mobilizing leadership around initiatives that produce tangible results for Northern Kentucky. We identify and implement projects important to Northern Kentucky's continued growth that are reflective of, but not exclusive to, the myNKY Plan with a focus on health, education, job growth and community vibrancy. The Regional Alliance is a shift toward strategic leadership and impact vs. tactical management and implementation of programs.

We are excited about the future of Northern Kentucky. We are committed to working with organizations throughout our region that are committed to action and results. And we are counting on your engagement and passion as all of us move NKY forward.
