you're looking at the new Public Policy Intern for the Alzheimer's Association.  I will be doing things I have not done in my first 3 years at the Association.  I will schedule meetings with state senators, congressmen/women  and US Senators.  I will participate in the meetings. I will do much of the planning for the Association's trips to Albany and Washington, DC for Public Policy Day and Alzheimer's Forum respectively.  Also I will work to get publicity for the Association in all forms of mass communications media. 

 

I did a little bit of this type of work my first year but in the past two years they've had interns from Marist College.  They don't have any this year so I volunteered and they agreed.  While it's not in conjunction with college course-work the expectations of me are as high or higher than the expectations were for the students.  I look forward to this challenge.

 

Oh and if you didn't see it, please congratulate Megmyster on her new job.  She rocks.

Things are going well. Staff and volunteers are respecting that I'm the intern not the volunteer and not giving me lots of volunteer work. The internship is very challenging, but I'm ready for it. I'm glad I'm doing it.
