IOM Designation

It is the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

For almost 100 years, the Institute has educated association, chamber, and other non-profit leaders across the country through its national program, highly rated curriculum, and high caliber instructors. Thousands of executives have attended Institute sites across the country to strengthen their management skills, learn industry best practices, and gain a broad national perspective from peers. Institute has helped them build stronger organizations, become stronger business advocates, and better serve their members. In addition, you will earn credit towards your CAE as Institute’s curriculum is directly tied to the domains of this industry certification.

Upon completion of the Institute program, graduates receive the IOM recognition which allows them to use the letters “IOM” in public mention and professional correspondence. The IOM recognition signifies the completion of 96 hours of course instruction in non-profit management and commitment to the industry.
