Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Chet Linton, CEO of School Improvement Network, joined a prestigious list of high-tech entrepreneurs last week when he was voted onto the Utah Technology Council’s (UTC) Board of Trustees.
In addition to Linton, 11 other Utah business leaders were named trustees by the group’s annual vote. The other new trustees include representatives of Omniture, Brigham Young University, Utah State University, and the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
Each new member of UTC’s Board of Trustees was brought aboard because of his unique strengths and perspectives on technology, said Richard R. Nelson, UTC’s CEO and founder. Being among this class of leaders shows how Linton and School Improvement Network are being recognized as major players in both the local community and the national education industry.
UTC is a top Utah professional association that helps high-tech and science-focused businesses succeed. It mainly does this by offering funding sources and opportunities to work with industry leaders. Since its formation in 1998, UTC has had numerous success stories helping small businesses grow and strengthening Utah’s burgeoning technology industry.

Educators can instantly find the help they need on nearly every topic, including differentiation, assessment, English language learners, leadership, and more. PD 360 can also be used to create a structured learning experience for an individual teacher, a PLC, or even an entire school.
