Phyllis Snodgrass, the San Marcos Area Chamber of Commerce president, has been appointed to the Board of Regents of Institute for Organization Management, a four-year professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The industry leader in nonprofit education, institute is held at five sites each year—four in the summer and one in the winter. Most students attend the one-week sessions at the same site each year, building a valuable network of industry professionals who provide year-round, peer-level support.
Institute’s Board of Regents serve on behalf of the National Board of Trustees. Each Board of Regents is responsible for implementing all policies and directives from the National Board of Trustees at its individual Institute site. Each regent is an Institute graduate nominated by their peers, and will serve for a designated term of up to two years.
“A strong Board of Regents is essential to Institute’s success,” said Raymond P. Towle, vice prsident of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “These volunteers drive site attendance, provide recommendations for program improvement, and serve as an on-site resource for Institute participants.”
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
