Dear CEIA Members,

We are excited to announce that the month of October is National CEIA Month!  CEIA month is dedicated to celebrating the hard work and meaningful contributions of interns, co-op students, and experiential learning professionals all across North America!

Join us in honor of the Cooperative Education & Internship Association’s (CEIA) 56th Anniversary! Let’s show interns, co-ops, and experiential learning professionals across the nation the power of community and the support they deserve as the professionals & employees of tomorrow.

Your donation will enable us to provide training for practitioners in the field, as well as allow us to share best practices, industry research and success stories in Experience Magazine.
