Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Student Association at ASU
What is AMI?
The Alliance Management Institute (AMI) is the largest national conference designed to prepare college students for a careers in the nonprofit field. The conference serves as a capstone experience for individuals receiving the CNP and is attended by upperclassmen, graduate students, and professionals dedicated to building and improving the future of nonprofit organizations. Students who attend AMI will have the unique opportunity of experiencing educational workshops, networking opportunities, and career development activities.
Invest in the Future of the Nonprofit Sector
Attending AMI is a learning experience that begins long before the conference commences. Aspiring Certified Nonprofit Professionals (CNPs) at ASU actively participate in a fundraising campaign to attend AMI, using knowledge and skills attained from their coursework. This year, 17 students will attend AMI 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri from January 3 – 5. The cost of attendance is about $1,600 per student. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for this year’s campaign.
Support Us: Invest in the Future of Nonprofit
According to a study by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA), there is a significant leadership gap in current and prospective nonprofit employees. In order to address this gap, the NLA is strengthening the social sector with a talented and prepared workforce. As students at ASU, this allows us to put theory into practice, bringing resources into our local community and contributing to the future of the field through the longest standing and most impactful nonprofit educational program in the country.
