The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is a fast-growing association of patients, family members and medical professionals impacted by this often misdiagnosed and difficult illness. PHA is committed to maintaining the organization's volunteer spirit and to building opportunities for those affected by pulmonary hypertension to be involved in solutions to the challenges the illness creates.

The Meetings Planning Internship offers students a structured experience working with PHA’s staff and constituents to assist in planning for PHA's 2015 PH Professional Symposium. This critical support will enable us to provide a quality meeting experience to the medical professionals who attend this event.

Interns will:

  • Gain valuable experience in the field of meetings and events planning
  • Assist with logistical details for auxiliary events associated with the 2015 Symposium
  • Help organize and prepare PHA materials to be shipped to meetings
  • Assist with registration processing and Raiser's Edge entry
  • Answer constituents' questions regarding Symposium
  • Complete other projects as assigned by the Meetings Planning Associate
  • Receive a transportation subsidy

Interns should:

  • Have an interest in meeting and events planning
  • Have solid knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel; additional computer ability a plus
  • Be able to organize information and document results for future reporting
  • Be able to think creatively and strategically, as well as multi-task
  • Possess strong oral and written communication skills
  • Be able to work well with teams
