Local Chamber President completes third year at Institute for Organization Management

TARBORO — Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, is pleased to announce that Bobbie Martin, President of the Tarboro Edgecombe Chamber of Commerce, has recently completed her third year at Institute for Organization Management (IOM). The Institute is a four-year nonprofit leadership training program at the University of Georgia in Athens.  

“Institute participants are recognized across the country as leaders in their communities,” said Raymond P. Towle, vice president of IOM at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “These individuals have the knowledge, skills, and dedication 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 weeklong sessions at five 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.

Graduates of the Institute receive the IOM recognition, signifying completion of 96 hours of course instruction in nonprofit management. In addition, participants can earn credit hours toward the Certified Chamber Executive (CCE) or Certified Association Executive (CAE) certifications. Nearly 1,000 individuals attend the Institute annually.
