TPM Fellows Program
Congratulations on being selected as a TPM Fellow!
The benefits of becoming a TPM Fellow are numerous. Fellows help shape TPM’s future and assist in developing growth opportunities for the broader network. The Chamber Foundation proudly and publicly recognizes TPM Fellows on our TPM web page and encourages Fellows to publicize their leadership on their various professional profiles.
Before you begin your application, please be sure to review all information provided on this page. Because there is no ability to save your work once you begin the application process, we strongly encourage you to prepare your documents and answers to the application questions in advance. You can review the full form here.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
What Does it Mean to be a TPM Fellow?
Fellows provide guidance as advisors on the continual expansion of the TPM initiative. This guidance includes feedback on how to maintain the quality of the TPM approach, create new support resources for existing and future network members, and identify innovative practices and audiences for which TPM can be applied.
TPM Fellows meet virtually at least once a quarter, two of which are typically in conjunction with TPM NLN Summits. Fellows self-select into areas of expertise (e.g., construction, rural communities, Strategy 2, CTE solutions, etc.) to share with existing and future TPM NLN members. They also serve as a mentor to at least two TPM NLN members and/or working groups and serve as spokespeople for the TPM movement, when requested.
How does this differ from being a TPM Faculty member?
TPM faculty members have been ordained by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to teach the TPM methodology at TPM Academies in coordination with the Chamber Foundation. Being a TPM Fellow does not mean you have to be a TPM faculty member, although this group of leaders is a natural pipeline for future faculty opportunities.
