Chamber of Southern Saratoga County
Member Services Manager Liz Roggenbuck,
a 12-year veteran of that organization, recently
received her Institute for Organization
Management (IOM) certificate from the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
This accreditation is conferred to chamber
of commerce and association professionals
upon completion of a 96 credit hour program
spread over four years, at one of five locations
Roggenbuck attended Northeast Institute
at Villanova University along with the Chamber
President/CEO Pete Bardunias, himself a
three-year attendee of the program.
“Institute has given our team the tools and techniques necessary to stay cutting edge in meeting the needs of our diverse membership,” said Bardunias. “The instructors are first-rate, having cultivated their skills through years of experience in organization management. I’m very proud of Liz on her achievement and look forward to following her as an IOM next year.”
As member services manager, Roggenbuck works with Chamber volunteers in coordinating various committees and programs including the Women In Business Committee, Saratoga County Executive Institute, and the Education/ Business Partnership.
The latter administers the chamber’s signature Community Development Program, responsible for such achievements as the historic Lock 19 bridge in Vischer Ferry, the Oral History Project in conjunction with the Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa, assisting in the renovations at the historic Mechanicville Train Station, and the development of the Waterford Community Business Alliance.
Several local chamber of commerce executives and staff members are attendees or graduates of the program.
