The Nonprofit Leadership Student Association, The University of Montana’s campus affiliate to the nationally run Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, placed third in a poster presentation contest at the 2013 Alliance Management/Leadership Institute, which was held Jan. 2-5 in Atlanta.

The NLSA team, made up of 10 UM undergraduate and graduate students, earned its award in the Best Practices category for its presentation of a poster titled “Local Application of the AMI Case Study.” This marks the first time the UM organization has ever placed in the AMI poster presentation.

UM was one of roughly 40 schools from across the country to enter the AMI poster contest. The four-day conference drew a record 640 students to the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta. Members of the Nonprofit Leadership Student Association raised funds to attend the event.

The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is a national credential program designed to prepare and certify future nonprofit professionals.
