Judi Penman Joins Salvation Army Advisory Board

Long-time civic leader Judi Penman has joined the advisory board of The Salvation Army.

“I am a strong believer in The Salvation Army” said Penman, who is also the president and chief execut ive officer of the San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce and an elected member of the San Bernardino City Unified School District governing board.

“I believe it is one of the best programs around. It gets to the people who really need help, and actually works with them,” Penman said.

“And, it is a Christian organization, which is important to me.”

Penman previously served on the Salvation Army Advisory Board from approximately 2005 through 2007.

The life-long San Bernardino resident is married to San Bernardino City Attorney James Penman.

“We are glad to have Judi back on the Salvation Army advisory board,” said Board President Tom Brickley. “The depth of knowledge she has about San Bernardino and her ability to make connections with others in the community will be a tremendous asset to us.”

The San Bernardino Corps of the Salvation Army serves the cities of San Bernardino, Rialto, Highland, Grand Terrace and Colton, and the unincorporated community of Bloomington.
