Summer 2015 AEJMC- ICIG News

Here is a list of the Internships and Careers Interest Group events at the AEJMC 2015 conference in San Francisco. Wednesday’s pre-conference Bootcamp is a perfect way to start the convention. Designed for internship coordinators, career services, and new faculty, it’s a great opportunity to network with your colleagues. Please consider attending Saturday’s Members Meeting, following our Top Paper session. We need a new Teaching/PF&R Chair. It’s a good opportunity to become more involved in AEJMC. Thank you to everyone for making this Interest Group a successful and growing arena of activity within AEJMC.
