A local Kearny resident is in the spot light. Angela Ramirez started as director with the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce in July 2010 and is excited to continue working as director. Ramirez said, “The Institute for Organizational Management has been a wonderful experience and has given me the opportunity to learn and grow so that I can be the best director for the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce.” Ramirez continued to say, “I have met some wonderful people who have not just become my friends but are a rolodex of knowledge, experience and support that I can call on any time. None of this would be possible without the support and encouragement I received from my board and my family.”

Ramirez graduated from the Institute for Organizational Management through the University of Arizona, a leadership training program produced by the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
