Author: Chad Meadows, Chair, APA-NC Legislative Committee
The NC-APA Legislative Committee is looking for an intern or chapter member with some time to assist in the preparation of a white paper on legislative committee best practices. The work includes interviews of past NC-APA Legislative Committee Chairs about their experiences and perspectives on the Committee’s past efforts as well as participation in telephone interviews with Legislative Chairs from other APA chapters across the country (approximately 10). Results of these interviews will be summarized in a white paper (to be prepared by the intern with oversight from the Legislative Committee) that will be provided to APA National and used to help guide the NC-APA Legislative Committee in its preparation of a new strategic plan over the coming months.
The work includes a stipend of up to $1,000 and is expected to require around 50 hours to complete. It is an excellent opportunity for a planning student or young professional considering a career in planning policy or legislation. The work has a short deadline, with the completion of the white paper by the end of November 2018.
Interested persons should send a resume and cover letter to Chad Meadows, Legislative Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidate selection will take place the last week in August. Candidates should be a member of NC-APA.
