Title: NCBA Accepting Public Policy Intern Applications

WASHINGTON – 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.

“It is important for college students preparing to enter the workforce to have real-world job experience. NCBA’s public policy and communications internship provides them with that experience and allows them to be a part of our government affairs team that works day in and day out to ensure ranchers are able to continue raising cattle and producing high-quality, healthy beef,” Butts said. “We encourage college juniors, seniors or graduate students who have an interest in public policy and the beef industry to consider applying for the internship.”

The full-time internship will begin Jan. 16, 2012 and end May 11, 2012. To apply, interested students should submit the application, an official college transcript, two letters of recommendation and a resume to by Oct. 10, 2011. More information about the 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.”
