IOM Summer Site Update

After much consideration and continuous monitoring of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel 2021 Midwest Institute and 2021 Northeast Institute. We know you were looking forward to returning to the classroom this summer, and we recognize that this news is frustrating to learn. 2021 Southeast Institute (now called Centennial Institute) will be moved from June to Monday, November 8 – Friday, November 12. Please read the full statement here.

Why I teach at IOM: It is an honor to work with chamber and association leaders across the country. They make such a difference in their communities and I am humbled that I get to be a small piece of their magnificent journey. Many of these leaders have become friends and mentors over the years. I’ve enjoyed the laughs, the opportunities, and the kick in the butt when I needed to be challenged. I have grown both personally and professionally from having an IOM network. I stated in my book, Bold New You, that “It is in the vulnerable space of a tribe that you trust that you will exponentially accelerate your awareness and growth.” That tribe for me has been my IOM family and I am grateful.
