Public Policy Internship
 The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in conjunction with the Public Lands Council offers internships fall, spring and summer semesters in Washington, D.C. This internship is a unique chance for students interested in the beef industry and federal policy. Interns will have the opportunity to engage with NCBA and PLC staff on several fronts including policy, communications and membership and will work closely with the lobbying and regulatory teams to advance policies important to the beef and sheep industries.    NCBA and PLC are affiliate organizations working on behalf of cattle producers and ranching families across the country. NCBA is producer directed and consumer focused, which creates a unique opportunity to unify policy and marketing efforts for the beef industry. Similarly, PLC works to maintain a stable business environment in which livestock producers that hold federal lands grazing permits can continue to conserve the resources and ranching heritage of the West. Together, NCBA and PLC represent the cattle and sheep industries and producers who operate on both public and private lands.
