Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has appointed Chris E. Wallace, IOM, chief executive officer of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce, to the National Board of Trustees. As a member of the trustees, Wallace will help set the strategic direction of Institute and will take an active role in advancing Institute’s standard operating and curriculum policies.

“Our National Board of Trustees has a rich history of non-profit experience providing Institute with a wide range of perspectives on the challenges facing our industry,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, the U.S. Chamber’s vice president of Institute for Organization Management. “These volunteers chart the course for Institute and ensure the program remains on the leading edge of executive level professional development.”

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 24-member National Board of Trustees serves in an advisory capacity to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and has policy-recommending responsibilities. Each trustee is nominated by their peers and serves for a designated term of up to two years.
