Shanen Corlett, IOM
Shanen graduated this week from Institute of Organization Management. She completed her 96 hours of course instruction, in non-profit management, at the Midwest Institute on the UW Madison campus. Over the last four years, Shanen has developed essential skills, knowledge and experiences...and brought back several ideas...that allow the Chamber to bring continued value to YOU, our members, and to the Lakeville community.

Institute for Organization Management is is the professional development program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. It is designed to enhance individual performance, elevate professional standards, and recognize association, chamber of commerce, and other nonprofit professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of nonprofit management.

The Chamber is very excited to be working on a 3-part professional development series for our members, in partnership with Erik Therwanger and ThinkGREAT. We will have more information this summer, and they will begin later this year.
