National Leadership Institute
The National Leadership Institute (NLI) takes place three times each year. NLI occurs over a weekend and involves SNMA and MAPS (Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students) members from all over the country. Members come together to participate in workshops focused on organizationaladvancement, leadership training and project development. Typically, in addition to general sessions, there are tracks specifically for various member groups e.g. board members and pre-medical students.
