Susan Tomlinson Schmidt, CNP will be the keynote speaker at the NMSA Closing Banquet on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018. As the President of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (the national organization that hosts the annual Alliance Management Institute (AMI) and manages the Certified Nonprofit Professional title) she will be traveling far to attend the awarding of the most CNP recipients BYU has ever seen in one year.
Seats are limited. Please register early. Please read these notes on registration:
Current NMSA Members are $5. Current members have paid for the current school year and thus do not have an expired membership. For example, if you joined the club in 2013 and have not renewed your membership since then, you must renew first or pay the non-member fee of $10. If you renew and have not received a black club t-shirt with the logo on it, you will be able to grab that at the banquet or before by contacting Brad Harris.
To check your membership status, visit marriottschool.byu.edu/clubs/myclubs. It will show you if you are expired in red as described.
Please double check and pay the appropriate amount. We will be verifying all registrations and will ask you to pay the appropriate amount if there is a mistake. If you have any questions, please send us a message!
Award recipient "plus one" indicates that you are the spouse/significant other of one of the CNP recipients. If you are coming to support the CNP but do not fall into one of these categories, and are not a club member, please pay the $10 non-member fee. Again, we will verify all registrations and payments before entrance to the banquet.
Please note that registration will end on April 1!
Oh hey Jackson! How's life as the NMSA's Executive Secretary? Awesome? Awesome.
Jackson is so cool, you guys. He's a 24 year old Senior here at BYU from Arlington, MA and is studying Political Science as well as Nonprofit Management and Civic Engagement Leadership who loves to read and can perform Daveed Diggs' "Guns and Ships" rap from "Hamilton." Too cool, huh?
His plan for the future is to work professionally in the Nonprofit Sector as a grant writer, social media manager, and more! He's on the board for a few reasons: "Aside from providing much-needed hours for the CNP certification and a strong resume builder, I wanted to get a taste of how a nonprofit board operates first-hand." From this experience along with others throughout his college career involving the Nonprofit Sector, he will be able to excel. "The way I see it, if I'm devoting 8-9 hours a day, 5 days a week to a job, I want that time and energy to serve a higher purpose rather than solely focusing on making money. I want my professional life to contribute to solving problems that plague the world."
Jackson wants to encourage you all to take advantage of the internship fair coming up this month (October). He attended in 2016 and was able to arrange two different internships as a result, so he knows how beneficial of an activity the fair is!
Come say hi to Jackson and the rest of the board at our activities. :) For questions or inquiries, email us at email@example.com. See you soon!
Meet Brittany, our Vice President!
Brittany is a 23 year old Senior from Loomis, CA studying Economics, Nonprofit Management and Sociology so she can be a Grant Writer and eventually get her MPA in Nonprofit Management. Her favorite thing to do in her spare time is simply to spend time with her husband (aw!), and a fun fact about Brittany is that she likes to make little videos of family vacations and funny moments. Gotta capture the memories! She loves using her skills to lessen human suffering, which is why she is so interested in Nonprofit Organizations and working in the Nonprofit Sector! She has been on the NMSA Board previously, so when asked why she decided to be on the board this year, she said,
"I enjoyed being the internship coordinator last time and working with so many great people. I really think the club has potential to grow and I want to help it grow to serve more people and educate others about careers in nonprofits."
Brittany is really passionate about the NMSA and it's purpose, and would encourage you all to come check us out! She says, "we're awesome and I've never met so many down to earth people." Seriously though, Brittany IS awesome, and she's right - we are really down to earth, so come join the NMSA and make a difference!
For any questions or inquiries, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
This is Traeden, and he is our 2017-2018 NMSA President!
I can't explain to you in minimal words just how awesome he is, so instead here's a bit of an introduction!
Traeden is 23 years old from Salt Lake City, UT. He is a Junior in school at BYU and is studying Physiology and Developmental Biology so that he can attend medical school and specialize in neurology (pretty smart stuff, eh?). He is an avid Mountain Biker, and has competed in races here in Utah. He loves to read and prefers books that allow him to learn. Some of his favorites include "The Alchemist," "When Breath Becomes Air," "Good to Great," and "Make it Stick." When we asked him why he is interested in Nonprofit Organizations, this was his answer:
"I love being a part of something bigger than myself. I have had many opportunities to succeed and progress in life for which I am extremely grateful. I have a soft spot in my heart for those less fortunate and desire that everyone have similar opportunities to succeed despite health problems, income, education, etc."
Traeden is a really dedicated President, and he does a wonderful job heading up this club on campus. He wanted to be on the NMSA board because he wanted to make sure each student has the correct opportunity that they need to succeed in a meaningful career. "I love helping those who want to serve others because they are always so willing and so selfless."
Come meet Traeden and the rest of the board at our frequent activities, or contact us with any questions/inquiries at email@example.com. See you soon!
Our Nonprofit Management Student Association club President, Traeden Wilson, wrote a wonderful welcome post on our new BYU linked website on Career Launch. Here it is!

As summer comes to an end, internships end, and vacations become memories, the looming anxiety of school approaches. This anxiety is different for each student. Some students are anxious to have a fresh start or anxious to work hard. Other students are nervous, their anxiety peaking as they review their upcoming schedule or a pricy booklist. Anxiety is a normal part of everyone’s summer coming to a close and no matter what kind of anxiety you have, we, here at the Nonprofit Management Student Association (NMSA), hope to add some positivity to your closing summer.
All summer long the NMSA board has worked hard to revamp the experience available for each NMSA member, bringing them opportunities to expand their learning and gain experience in the nonprofit sector. All of our club information, events, and opportunities will be easily accessible through our website byunmsa.org, our Marriott School Career Launch Page, and our newsletter emails, not to mention our popular Facebook page.
Our mission is to develop the future leaders of the nonprofit sector at Brigham Young University, so this year we are bringing our members new experiences that will help build knowledge and experience. NMSA members who are current on their dues will have access to monthly internship updates, a personalized membership profile, opportunities to have writings published, a semester case study project, advanced premium pricing on club events, and much more.
The Nonprofit Management Student Association helps members achieve their career goals and find success in the nonprofit sector. This year we are really taking this purpose to heart. We will provide memorable experiences, coordinate professional networking, and connect students with internship opportunities so that each student can easily “enter to learn, and go forth to serve.”
