National Board of Trustees.

“A strong

Board of Regents is essential to Institute’s success,” Raymond P. Towle,

IOM, CAE, vice president of Institute for Orga- nization Management at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said in the release. “These volunteers drive site attendance, provide recommenda­tions for program improvemen­t, and serve as an on-site resource for Institute participan­ts.”

Since its commenceme­nt in 1921, the Institute program has been educating tens of thousands of associatio­n, chamber, and other nonprofit leaders on how to build stronger organizati­ons, better serve their members and become strong business advocates, the release said.

The Institute’s four Boards of Regents serve on behalf of the National Board of Trustees. Each Board of Regents is responsibl­e for recruitmen­t, retention, and marketing of the program nationwide. Each regent is an Institute graduate nominated by their peers.
