The 59th Annual Cooperative Education and Internship Association Conference was held, live and in-person, April 3-5, 2022 in Alexandria, Virginia. This year’s theme was Celebrate, Advocate, and Inspire. I believe we can all relate to each of those areas as we look to the future.
The Conference Committee planned an outstanding conference at the Westin Alexandria Old Town. This Four-Star Four-Diamond hotel was the perfect location. There was beauty along the cobblestone streets and red brick sidewalks in Old Town Alexandria, home to specialty shops, boutiques, and museums. Just across the Potomac River, we discovered first-class attractions at National Harbor and Washington, D.C.
The program proved to be exciting and fulfilling. Keynote & plenary speakers, DC internship student panel, breakout sessions, networking events, monument tour, and awards all brought us together in a meaningful way.
CEIA is a special organization. Thanks to each of you for the support over the past two years as we transitioned from in-person to virtual and back to in-person conferences. We enjoyed seeing each of you, in-person, in Alexandria!
