Testimonial from Tina, first NACC LA Intern:

" I am currently doing my summer internship at NACC LA and I am working closely with Erik Steigen, president of NACC LA. My main goal as an intern is to help to develop NACC LA by finding new members, writing newsletter, working on the Website and helping with organizing events. I recommend students interested in Business and Communication to work at NACC LA because it is a great opportunity to meet a lot of Scandinavians in different industries and to create a network in the US. In addition, this internship allows me to get school credits, a recommendation letter, a reference and a nice experience to put on my resume"
