Jason Camis, president of the Gardner Edgerton Chamber of Commerce graduated from the Institute for Organization Management (IOM) program, a professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
To receive IOM graduate recognition, Camis completed 96-hours of course instruction in nonprofit management.
“Institute graduates are recognized across the country as leaders in their industries and organizations,” Raymond P. Towle, vice president of the Institute for Organization Management, said. “These individuals have the knowledge, skills, and dedication necessary to achieve professional and organizational success in the dynamic association and chamber industries.”
The institute was inaugurated in 1921, and since that time, tens of thousands of association, chamber and nonprofit leaders have taken the institute’s courses to learn how to build stronger organizations, Towle said.
“Through a combination of required courses and electives in areas such as leadership, advocacy, marketing, finance, and membership, Institute participants are able to enhance their own organizational management skills and add new fuel to their organizations, making them run more efficiently and effectively,” he said.
