WASHINGTON — The Institute for Organization Management appointed Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce President Jackie Lovejoy to its Northeast Board of Regents
The IOM is the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
As a member of the board, Lovejoy will implement the policies created by institute’s national board of trustees.
“A strong board of regents is essential to institute’s success,” said Raymond Towle, IOM vice president. “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 IOM 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.
The IOM’s five boards of regents serve on behalf of the national board of trustees. Each board is responsible for recruitment, retention, and marketing of the program nationwide. Each regent is an institute graduate nominated by their peers.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce dedicated to strengthening America’s long-term competitiveness. It educates the public on the conditions necessary for business and communities to thrive, how business positively impacts communities, and emerging issues and creative solutions that will shape the future.
