Michael W. Johnson, IOM, NSSGA president and CEO, was appointed to the U.S. Chamber Foundation’s Institute for Organization Management (IOM) National Board of Trustees. In this role, Johnson will directly shape the Institute’s strategic direction and further its mission to provide professional development programs for association, chamber and nonprofit professionals.

“Our National Board of Trustees has a rich history of non-profit experience providing Institute with a wide range of perspectives on the challenges facing our industry,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, vice president of Institute for Organization Management at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “These volunteers chart the course for the Institute and ensure the program remains on the leading edge of executive-level professional development.”

“It’s an honor to be appointed to this role at IOM, an organization that has helped me and so many others become more effective leaders and advocates,” said Johnson. “I look forward to working to advance the Institute and further the education of those working in the non-profit space.” Johnson graduated from Winter Institute at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Ariz. in 2018.

Since its commencement in 1921, the Institute 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. 

Institute’s 24-member National Board of Trustees serves in an advisory capacity to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and has policy-recommending responsibilities. Each trustee is nominated by their peers.

Johnson is also a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Association Committee of 100 and is an American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Key Industry Association Council member. He has also been named a “Leading Association Lobbyist” and a “Young & Aspiring Association Professional” by Association TRENDS in the past.
