how to build an internship program
where everyone wins

Internship programs are a valuable tool for both current event professionals and students.  They allow students to get hands-on experience in events, deepening their knowledge of the industry and making them valuable employees for years to come.  They give event professionals the ability to teach students how to be successful and motivated within their careers and create good habits what will benefit them in the future.  

Internships are a win-win situation if they are done right.

Join us for our January Member meeting at the Foundation Room in the House of Blues to talk with event professionals and students who have created and executed successful internship programs.  They will share their knowledge of government regulations as well as tips for creating a program that engages students while positively impacting your business.  

Thank you to our panelists!
