Minnesota Rural Electric Association, a 44 rural electric co-ops across MN at their non-profit statewide trade association, providing employee education, training and conferences, is looking for an event and communications intern immediately.
Minnesota Rural Electric Association stays quite focused on industry-specific needs, but there are a vast diversity among employee groups!!
One group in particular, co-op communicators, gets together annually for part training & part roundtable/sharing. It is usually around 20 people and they meet at our training room at our office in Maple Grove.
The group indicated that they help with its various communications / ads / newsletters / fresh ideas for online social media & websites. They stated:
“We want to update the layout of some of our internal and external communications such as brochures, employee newsletter, ads, etc. and are not a graphic designers. Been looking online to get some ideas on how to layout such documents, but haven’t found a good go-to resource for this (that’s also free). Perhaps there’s someone who could help those of us communicators who wear many hats and have to tackle such projects without the formal training or background, and also with little to no budget!?”
This group is a mix of some fairly seasoned, excellent communicators and some newer ones who have experience and fresh ideas coming from OUTSIDE the utility industry.
