Alliance Management Institute


The Alliance Management/Leadership Institute (AMI) is an annual, national conference held by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. Each year it takes place in a different city with other campuses across the nation who are in the alliance as well.   Students attend at least one conference while earning their certification. During AMI students attend classes, keynote speakers, and case studies to apply and show their knowledge of the nonprofit sector.

This fall, NLA students are working towards raising funds for the trip through their Annual Campaign. The Alliance Management Institute (AMI), will take place in Kansas City, Missouri, the Alliance’s national headquarters, January 2020. AMI is a great place for young professionals to learn new skills and techniques and to network with professionals in the nonprofit sector.

In January 2016, the UNI Nonprofit Leadership Alliance traveled to Houston, Texas for the Alliance Management Institute!  Take a look at their experience below:

UNI was also awarded the “2016 Campus Program of Excellence Award”. UNI NLA was very honored and thankful to achieve this award! Below is the video that was submitted for the application: (film credit: Chris Dummer and Devon Mettlin)
