We are business leaders committed to working with public and civic leaders to make the Bay Area the most innovative, globally competitive and sustainable region in the world. The Bay Area Council is a business-sponsored, public-policy advocacy organization for the nine-county Bay Area. The Council proactively advocates for a strong economy, a vital business environment, and a better quality of life for everyone who lives here. Founded in 1945, as a way for the region’s business community and like-minded individuals to concentrate and coordinate their efforts, the Bay Area Council is widely respected by elected officials, policy makers and other civic leaders as the regional voice of business in the Bay Area. Today, more than 260 of the largest employers in the region support the Bay Area Council and offer their CEO or top executive as a member.
Intern or co-op student needed to provide research, analytical, communications, marketing, planning and administrative support to this public policy advocacy organization for the Bay Area business community. Support for the organization’s global initiative, including promoting trade and investment between China and California may also be involved. Assignments may range from public policy research and analysis, program design, market research, trade and investment promotion, foundation funding analysis and requests, website content development, event management, and database development. Administrative support such as coordinating mailings, managing contact lists, and arranging meetings will also be involved, but will not be a major part of the workload. Interns will have the opportunity to attend Council events and policy committee meetings to see first-hand how the Council and its CEO-level members engage with stakeholder groups in the shaping of public policy for the region. The work environment is a highly professional office located in the heart of the San Francisco Financial District. The internship is unpaid.
