City of Arts & Innovation Intern Experience

The Winston-Salem Chamber and the Winston Under 40 Young Professionals group are excited to expand and enhance our community’s efforts to host summer interns by taking leadership of the “City of Arts and Innovation Intern Experience” which partners with great organizations like Inmar, whom initiated these efforts a few years ago. This initiative seeks to assist our business community by providing increased communication and programing that will expose interns to our community and one another.

The initiative includes:

  • Increased communication and programing that will expose interns from across different companies to one another
  • Creation and distribution of a useful calendar of all events which may be of interest to interns, both social and community engagement geared.  (Events such as the food truck Fridays at Bailey Park, all you can eat nights at the ballpark, the rib fest, wine festivals, first Friday gallery hops, the list goes on…)
  • Hosting our 2nd Annual CAIIE Intern Experience on June 16th at Farrell Hall at WFU as an introductory event and “Welcome to Winston” program. Both interns and their supervisors are invited to participate. For more information and to register, click here.
  • Continued efforts to team with other young professionals groups so we may be able to facilitate informal socializing among interns.

How you can participate:

Simply contact, or have someone at your company contact, Joseph Hamby at the WS Chamber – jhamby@winstonsalem.com (336-728-9227), and let him know you are on board.  If you have a calendar of events for your specific intern program, send that to him as well so that the team can start analyzing where a strategic CAIIE event could occur.  Also, feel free to send over any ideas or suggestions you want to see this summer.
