Want an Ag Internship in Washington, D.C.?


The following is a press release from NCBA:

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts said NCBA is seeking applications for its public policy and communications internship.

“NCBA’s public policy and communications internship provides students with valuable real world experience as well as a first hand glimpse of the work NCBA does in Washington, D.C., to ensure ranchers are able to continue raising cattle and producing high-quality, healthy beef,” Butts said. “We are looking for college students with an interest in the beef industry and in public policy to help NCBA’s government affairs team. The internship is designed to work closely with the lobbying team on Capitol Hill; to assist with NCBA’s regulatory efforts; and help the communications team make NCBA’s voice heard through both new and traditional media channels.”

The full-time internship will begin Sept. 12, 2011 and end Dec. 16, 2011. To apply, interested college juniors and seniors should submit the application, an official college transcript, two letters of recommendation and a resume to internships@beef.org by Aug. 12, 2011. More information about the NCBA public policy internship is available on NCBA’s website.

“From food safety and trade to environmental issues and taxes, this internship will give college students the opportunity to work alongside NCBA staff on many critical issues affecting U.S. cattlemen and women.” Butts said.  “If you or someone you know is interested in this opportunity, we encourage you to apply.”


The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) has represented America’s cattle producers since 1898, preserving the heritage and strength of the industry through education and public policy.  As the largest association of cattle producers, NCBA works to create new markets and increase demand for beef.  Efforts are made possible through membership contributions.
