WASHINGTON, D.C.—Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has appointed Jeremy L. Arthur, IOM, president of the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama, to chair the Southeast Board of Regents. As chair of this board, Arthur will implement the policies created by Institute’s National Board of Trustees, leading the Southeast Institute site and directing site recruitment.
“A strong Board of Regents is essential to Institute’s success,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, the U.S. Chamber’s vice president of Institute for Organization Management. “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 educated 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.
Institute’s five 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, and will serve for a designated term of up to two years.
Starting in 2009, Arthur has held numerous leadership positions within the Institute program. Arthur graduated from Southeast Institute at the University of Georgia in Athens in 2008 and has served on the Southeast Institute Board of Regents since 2010.
