2023 Internship Program

AHF will be accepting nominations for internships in conjunction with our Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida at the Omni Resort at ChampionsGate August 7-9, 2023. Recipients would be expected to travel to Orlando, and work the conference. AHF may also feature you in S.O. Connected, AHF’s published quarterly magazine after the event. This is a great way to get on the radar of future employers while gaining valuable unique work experience for your resume. 

AHF intern opportunities are an excellent way to gain real-world experience at a complex national association conference. During your time on-site at the conference you will participate in the management and running of AHF’s national conference, have the opportunity to visit sessions and network with future employers.
