Denise Hart, CEO and president of the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, has been awarded a National Institute Scholarship. It is from the Institute for Organization Management, the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

Given to professionals across the country, the National Institute Scholarships recognize each recipient for their involvement in industry professional organizations, community service and professional background, according to a release.

“National Institute Scholarships offer executives the opportunity to learn about emerging industry trends, expand their organizations’ influence and grow their peer network,” Raymond P. Towle, vice president of Institute for Organization Management at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, said in the release. “We are pleased to help these talented professionals advance their careers and organizations.”

Since its commencement in 1921, the program has  educated 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 release states.

The institute’s curriculum consists of four weeklong sessions at five 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, according to the release.

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 or Certified Association Executive certifications. Nearly 1,000 individuals attend the institute annually.
