NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI-NY) announced today that it is seeking partners in the New York area investor relations, public relations and corporate communications communities who can offer internships for the chapter’s Logler 9/11 Internship Program in summer 2013.
The NIRI-NY 9/11 Logler Memorial Internship Program is sponsored on a volunteer basis by NIRI-NY to provide meaningful summer internship opportunities to relatives of victims of the 9/11 attacks. The chapter’s internship program was re-dedicated by NIRI-NY in memory of chapter member Elizabeth (Beth) Logler, Vice President-Investor Relations of eSpeed, who lost her life in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
In past years, NIRI-NY has successfully placed interns with Altria, Burson-Marstellar, Capital Bridge, Catalyst Global, Delphi Financial, EDGAR Online, Hain Celestial, PepsiCo, and Veeco Instruments.
More than ten years following the attacks, we remain as committed as ever to supporting those children who are just now embarking on their professional paths. If you or your firm has the ability to offer a paid summer internship in investor or public relations or corporate communications, please email Patrick Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those companies who can only offer an unpaid opportunity, NIRI NY can arrange for a stipend for the student.
