Dr. Timothy Magner, President of the Greater Shreveport Chamber, has been selected by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) to study economic recovery and resilience strategies with 21 other chambers of commerce professionals from communities throughout the United States.
The Fellowship for Inclusive Economic Growth is an immersive executive development program that provides chamber of commerce professionals with education and tools to build more equitable economies in their regions. This Fellowship comes at an important time as communities continue to address the economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Chamber Board is pleased that Tim was selected to represent our community in this Fellowship, said Brian McNew, Chairman of the Greater Shreveport Chamber. “Our community is working to diversify our economy and we look forward to learning what Tim is able to bring back from his interactions with other communities around the nation”.
Throughout the year-long Fellowship for Inclusive Economic Growth, participants will focus on addressing different aspects of inclusive economic growth, from education and talent to economic development to entrepreneurship. The curriculum will focus on strategies for building more equitable economic outcomes and creating economies that work for everyone.
“We are excited to work with this impressive group of chamber leaders,” said ACCE President & CEO Sheree Anne Kelly. “This fellowship will support their efforts to engage business leaders and community stakeholders to shape recovery efforts, build resilient local economies, and create opportunities for everyone in the community to thrive.”
ACCE’s Fellowship for Inclusive Economic Growth is designed to help chambers refine their inclusive economic recovery goals and ultimately help the business associations nationwide build replicable programs and processes. Leaders selected to participate in the Fellowship represent urban and rural communities from 18 states.
