Special to 1831Galion


Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to announce that Miranda Jones, Executive Director of the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce, has recently completed her second year at Institute for Organization Management, a four-year nonprofit leadership training program in Athens, Georgia.

“Institute graduates are recognized across the country as leaders in their industries and organizations,” says Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, the U.S. Chamber’s vice president of Institute for Organization Management. “These individuals have the knowledge, skills, and dedication necessary to achieve professional and organizational success in the dynamic association and chamber industries.”

Since its commencement in 1921, the Institute program has been educating tens of thousands of association, chamber, and other nonprofit leaders on how to build stronger organizations, better serve their members, and become strong business advocates. The Institute’s curriculum consists of four week-long sessions at four different university locations throughout the country. 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.

Institute for Organization Management is the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It is the premier nonprofit professional development program for association and chamber professionals, fostering individual growth through interactive learning and networking opportunities.

“I am thankful for my Board of Directors for giving me the opportunity to continue my leadership development at IOM,” states Miranda Jones about the experience. “I find the week to be a great chance to see what other chambers are doing across the county and to bring home new energy and ideas that our chamber can implement to help our businesses grow and succeed.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization, representing companies of all sizes across every sector of the economy. Our members range from the small businesses and local chambers of commerce that line the Main Streets of America to leading industry associations and large corporations.
