WASHINGTON, D.C.— Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, has appointed Henry Florsheim, IOM, president and CEO of the Wichita Fall Chamber, to vice chair the Southeast Board of Regents. As vice chair of the board, Florsheim will help implement the policies created by the Institute’s National Board of Trustees.

“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 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 and will serve for a designated term of two years, up to three consecutive terms.

Starting in 2015, Florsheim has held numerous leadership positions within the Institute program. Florsheim graduated from Southeast Institute at the University of Georgia in Athens in 2014 and has served on the Southeast Institute Board of Regents since 2017.  He served as a class advisor there in 2015 and 2016.

Institute for Organization Management is the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. It is the premier nonprofit professional development program for association and chamber professionals, fostering individual growth through interactive learning and networking opportunities.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USCCF) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce dedicated to strengthening America’s long-term competitiveness by addressing developments that affect our nation, our economy, and the global business environment.
