CSMA hosts writer and entrepreneur Brian Ogstad

September 28, 2016

Northwest Nazarene University’s Center for the Study of Market Alternatives (CSMA) is hosting a series of guest lectures that are free and open to the public. The first lecture is Tuesday, October 4, 7-9 p.m. in the Harter Lecture Hall of the Helstrom Business Building located at 804 Dewey Street, Nampa on the NNU campus.

National speaker, writer and entrepreneur Brian Ogstad will present a lecture on “The Power of Entrepreneurship.” Professor Ogstad is also the president of Amagi Productions—an entrepreneurial non-profit with the mission of informing, educating and promoting the ideas of liberty and a free society.

The CSMA was founded in 1976 by Caldwell businessman Ralph Smeed for the study of political, economic and religious liberty. The center moved to the campus of NNU in 2014 and serves as an educational resource for students and community as it continues the exploration and promotion of these important liberties.

The center also teaches a summer economic class to high school teachers who are looking to further their education and become certified.
