Registration for the summer sites will open in early 2022.  The vaccine requirement below is in still in place until further notice.  Any changes or updates will be shared immediately.

Scholarship applications for all three summer sites can be found on the scholarship page.  The deadline for all site applications is 5:00 p.m. EST on Monday, February 14.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its affiliate, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, are committed to the safety of our visitors, our team, and our communities. We require Chamber employees and external guests of Chamber events to be fully vaccinated to participate in Chamber events (i.e., at least two weeks since receiving the Johnson & Johnson shot or the second Moderna or Pfizer shot). This includes offsite events, such as Institute for Organization Management.

All participants will be asked to complete documentation during the registration process and upon arrival on-site attesting to their health and vaccination status. We will adjust our plans as needed to follow the latest guidance.  Please note that this does not apply to venue staff.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate these uncertain times.

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.
