NJBIA's Annual Public Policy Forum - Planning Prosperity REGISTER NOW

The Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has selected NJBIA Vice President Kate Conroy to chair its Northeast Board of Regents.

Conroy, who formerly served as vice president of the Gateway Chamber of Commerce, joined NJBIA in 2015 and now serves as the association’s vice president for Strategic Partnerships, where she manages the design and implementation of NJBIA’s successful professional events. She is also familiar to many NJBIA member companies as the popular co-host of the NJBIA podcast, “Other People’s Business.”

In her new volunteer role as chair of the Institute’s Northeast Board of Regents, Conroy will lead the implementation of policies created by national board of the Institute for Organization Management, which is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

“A strong board of regents is essential to Institute’s success,” said Raymond P. Towle, vice president of Institute for Organization Management at 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.”

Since its commencement in 1921, the Institute program has been educating tens of thousands of leaders of associations, chambers, and nonprofits on how to build stronger organizations, better serve their members and become strong business advocates.

The Institute’s four boards of regents are responsible for recruitment, retention, and marketing of the program nationwide. Each regent is an Institute graduate nominated by their peers.

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