The State Chamber is excited to offer an internship program for area college students that are seeking to gain experience in legislative advocacy and government affairs. We are currently looking for qualified students to fill internship positions in our Government Affairs, Political Projects and Communications departments. Interns can gain experience shadowing registered lobbyists, communicating on a statewide level with both business leaders and elected officials, or working on political campaign research and messaging – depending on the position. They can also benefit by networking with industry professionals and business leaders.
