2024 Mid-Year Meeting AIM Internship
New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association (NMCGA) Allied Industry Committee will be hosting college interns at the upcoming 2024 NMCGA Mid-Year Meeting in Ruidoso, NM.  “The Allied Industry Mentorship program allows students to build relationships with industry partners and cattlemen across the state,” said President Bronson Corn, Roswell.  “We know, as a young person, it can be hard to know what career field you may want to be in. We hope to give students a chance to learn from multiple sectors of the agriculture industry through one single internship.” Interns will have the opportunity to shadow NMCGA Leadership and Allied Industry Partners.  Having an internship gives student an experience in the career field they want to pursue, as well as giving them the face-to-face time with peers and industry leaders. Looking back on her internship, 2023 Joint Stockmen Convention AIM intern Rayleigh Carter said, "My time serving as an AIM intern has already proven to be beneficial during my academic and professional pursuits. I will always be grateful for the industry leaders and issues I was presented with during the internship."

NMCGA is working with Allied Industry Partners on this program that will offer businesses the opportunity to bring new ideas and energy into the workplace, discover talent, and potentially build a pipeline for future full-time employees.  There are over 15 different agriculture related sectors represented in the trade show.  “We hope this program will continue to give students a useful experience and connect them with future employers,” stated Corn.

Applications are due May 1, 2024.
