Mr. David Schmidt
Director, American Lung Association
424 West Superior Street
Duluth, MN 55802-1532
Dear Mr. Schmidt:
Please accept this letter as my application for the Coordinator – Tobacco Program Services position with the American
Lung Association (ALA). I learned of this position through Jamie Alexander, the instructor for my Leadership &
Management of Nonprofit Organizations course. I admire the American Lung Association’s mission and spent six months
doing an internship with the local chapter where I focused on tobacco cessation programming and intervention. As a
recent graduate of the Community & Nonprofit Leadership (CNPL) major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I
believe my education and experiences will allow me to make immediate contributions and further the success of ALA.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a strong interest in working for a nonprofit organization in a capacity that deals
with health and wellness. This interest led me to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in CNPL, which I received in May
2013. The coursework I was exposed to provided me with an exceptional foundation and deep understanding of how
nonprofit organizations function and thrive. I excelled in my CNPL courses, and beyond my academics, I also served as
the Special Events Coordinator for the Community and Nonprofit Leaders UW student organization. In this role, I
collaborated with other members to plan, coordinate, and implement a variety of events that benefited the local
community. In addition, I was able to develop promotional materials for those events and deliver classroom presentations
to educate my peers on the types of activities that the organization was offering. Being active both inside and outside the
classroom during my time at the university has allowed me to develop exceptional organizational and time management
skills, as evidenced by my 3.72 overall GPA.
As you can see in the enclosed resume, I also have a variety of work experience in the nonprofit sector. I spent my
sophomore year of college working with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County where I planned a variety of after-
school activities for children and teens. Following my time with Boys and Girls Club, I pursued and completed an
Outreach Advocate internship with the American Lung Association. In this role, I developed a thorough knowledge of
tobacco control policy and advocacy and spent much of my time performing outreach to the local community. I worked
extensively with the Director of Outreach to develop programs related to tobacco cessation and intervention, and thereby
significantly increased my interest in working within this specific area of wellness. These experiences will serve me well
as they provide a unique combination of knowledge and skills tailored perfectly for implementing interventions and
outreaches.
I am incredibly excited about the possibility of continuing my work with the American Lung Association and would
appreciate an opportunity to further discuss the position and my qualifications with you. Please contact me at 608-555-
1234 or smitherin@wisc.edu to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,
Erin Smith
