Chamber Executive Graduates from Professional Development Program

MENIFEE, CA - Elaine Bartolome, Board of Director, at the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce, was among the 34 chamber executives to graduate last Thursday from Academy, a professional development program presented by the Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.).

Academy is an interactive 3-day (three-year) training program on chamber management essentials designed for today’s chamber executives and staff professionals.

“We congratulate all of the graduates and their chambers for having the vision to invest in professional development,” said W.A.C.E. Interim President/CEO Jennifer Johnson, IOM.

During the three-year Academy program, graduates participated in 18 three-hour classes and must successfully complete additional independent study outside of the classroom.

W.A.C.E is an association of chamber of commerce executives and staff professionals designed to promote and enhance professional development. With approximately 800 members from twenty-one Western states and Canada, W.A.C.E. is the largest state or regional association of chamber of commerce executives in the United States.
