Jenks Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Josh Driskell has been named Vice Chair of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Winter Institute for Organization Management’s Board of Regents during a meeting last month.

Driskell graduated from Institute in 2017 and has served on the Board of Regents since 2018.

“Institute is the gold standard for chamber and association professionals,” he said. “It’s an honor to be able to continue to serve this great professional development organization and the professionals seeking to better themselves and their organizations. I’ve truly enjoyed serving on the Board of Regents with some of the nation’s best chamber and association professionals.”

As part of his duties, Driskell will serve on the Curriculum Committee for the Institute program for the coming year and will serve as Chair of Winter Institute in 2024

Since its commencement in 1921, the Institute program has been educating 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.

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 is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce dedicated to strengthening America’s long-term competitiveness.
