WASHINGTON -- The Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, announced last week Tammy Wellbrock, executive director of the Hays Area Chamber of Commerce, has been awarded a Regent Scholarship. Awarded to 21 professionals from across the country, the scholarships recognize each recipient for their involvement in industry professional organizations, community service and professional background.

"Regent scholarships offer executives the opportunity to attend Institute and learn about emerging industry trends, expand their organizations' influence, and grow their peer network," said Raymond P. Towle, a foundation executive. "We are pleased to help these talented professionals advance their careers and organizations."

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.    

Each of the Regent Scholarship recipients will attend one of institute's five sites in 2013. At the completion of the four-year curriculum, each of the recipients will receive the IOM graduate recognition, signifying completion of 96 hours of course instruction in nonprofit management and their commitment to the industry. In addition, all credit hours earned through Institute can be applied toward the Certified Chamber Executive or Certified Association Executive industry certification.
