WASHINGTON, D.C. -
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently announced Marcy Angelo, manager of business development at the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber, graduated from its premier business leadership program. The inaugural Business Leads Fellowship Program trained and equipped leaders from state and local chambers of commerce with resources, access to experts and a network of peers to build their capacity to address the most pressing education and workforce challenges.

"There are many efforts across the country that are supporting a solution to today's workforce challenges. I look forward to taking everything I learned from the connections I made during this fellowship to see how we can create opportunities in the Mahoning Valley as we continue to support the needs of the business community," says Angelo.

"As clearly displayed throughout this program, state and local leaders know better than anyone the critical link between education and economic development," says Cheryl Oldham, senior vice president of the Center for Education and Workforce. "Not only did the Fellows gain a network of peers and experts in the field, the program is designed to help these leaders find opportunities to develop initiatives that will continue to advance the growth of their local economy and put education policy into practice."

Following a competitive application and selection process, Angelo was selected along with 34 other state and local chamber executives to participate in the second cohort. The three-month program, which ended earlier this month, covered the entire talent pipeline, including early childhood education, K-12, higher education and workforce development.

Upon completion, Business Leads Fellows join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's dedicated network of 200 chambers of commerce and statewide associations from around the nation who regularly engage on education and workforce initiatives.
