The program brings together leading young association professionals and established thought leaders to focus on young professional perspectives in the association community. The NextGen Association Summit is a competitively selected program for professionals under age 35 with demonstrated leadership potential. Approximately 25 young professionals are invited to participate in the program, held annually in September in Reno, Nevada. Scholarship Opportunity for Institute for Organization Management The Georgia Society of Association Executives is proud to partner with Institute for Organization Management, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's professional development program for nonprofit executives, and offer two $500 partial tuition scholarships to one of Institute's 2017 sites. The two scholarships, available to our members, will be awarded to students attending Institute for the first time to assist with enrollment fees and cannot be combined with any other Institute scholarships. For 95 years, Institute has educated association, chamber, and other nonprofit 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 points towards your CCE or CAE certification as Institute's curriculum is directly tied to the bodies of knowledge of both the American Society of Association Executives and the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. 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 nonprofit management and commitment to the industry. If you are interested in this scholarship opportunity, contact Wendy at (404) 577-7850 by October 14. Early registration deadline for Winter Institute is November 18. For more information about Institute's curriculum, sites, and dates, visit the Institute Web site and Prospective Student Toolkit to help you gain insight into the program. connections > 9 http://www.gsae.org
