"Being a part of the NACA Mid-America conference team was a really wonderful way to be introduced to a professional association that is relevant to my functional area (student unions). I also had a chance to build skills that have been helpful in both my assistantship and looking forward into my job search. Helping manage communications and social media was something new, fun, and different, and I really enjoyed working with the team and meeting so many great NACA folks!"

"The NACA Mid America graduate internship experience allowed me to gain a better insight into the National Association for Campus Activities enabling me to better use the resources the association offers members. I really enjoyed working with the NACA MAM team as everyone was very welcoming and open to sharing advice to the grad interns."
