NACD is seeking an intern to work a 15-week fall internship from September-December at its headquarters in Washington, D.C. The intern will work with the Legislative Affairs and Communications staff to advance the association’s legislative agenda. He/she will learn the legislative process and gain valuable hands-on experience. The intern will gain a working knowledge of Congress, federal natural resource and environmental agencies, and the role of conservation districts and state conservation agencies in the development of natural resource, agricultural and environmental policies.
NACD interns are typically college juniors or seniors who are interested in agriculture and conservation. Interns are expected to work full time, but special arrangements can be made if classes need to be taken locally to obtain college credit. A performance-based stipend is awarded at the conclusion of the internship. The intern is responsible for finding his or her own housing, but NACD staff can provide assistance and advice on the process.
