The U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress (FMC) is seeking one or two highly qualified interns to support its Government and Public Policy and Domestic Initiatives Programs. The Association is a non-profit, bipartisan, and non-advocacy organization with a membership of over 500 former Representatives and Senators. In addition to its alumni activities for former Members, FMC serves as the secretariat for a number of major domestic and international programs engaging its membership and current Members of Congress.
The intern will support and facilitate planning for FMC’s many domestic programs, including: the Congress to Campus Program, the Annual Meeting, the Common Ground Project, The Statesmanship Awards Dinner, the Charitable Golf Tournament, panels at the National Archives, and as well as other civic and politically-oriented events. Other tasks include managing FMC’s social media (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr), providing office/administrative support, and writing/researching/editing information for FMC’s programs. Interns will attend and cover Association-sponsored events on Capitol Hill and be responsible for drafting reports. The preferred candidate will have an in-depth knowledge of social media and internet research and be proficient in MS Office programs.
Since the Association plans numerous high-profile events involving former and current Members of Congress, high-level government officials, leaders of the diplomatic community, and foundation/think-tank representatives, applicants must be comfortable interacting with VIPs; as well as be extremely motivated, flexible, and responsible.
Although this is an unpaid position, the Association’s balance of domestic and international programs provides invaluable experience in many applicable fields. College credit is available.
To apply, send an email with a cover letter, current resume, and a short writing sample (2-3 pages) to Sharon Witiw email@example.com or Rachel Haas firstname.lastname@example.org.
