NACE, on behalf of its members, addresses issues of concern to the profession.

U.S. Internships: A Definition and Criteria to Assess Opportunities and Determine the Implications for Compensation (July 2011)
U.S. Internships: Unpaid Internships (June 2010)
U.S. Talent Crisis: H-1B Visas (October 2007)
* July 2011: Internships – Provided the U.S. Department of Labor with the definition of an internship and criteria by which to assess whether an experience should be compensated.
* Spring 2011: Federal Pathways Program – 1) NACE Executive Director Marilyn Mackes testified at a public hearing on proposed regulations for implementing the Pathways Program (Executive Order 13562), which was established to “provide clear paths to Federal internships and potential careers in government for students and recent graduates.” Her testimony was incorporated into the public record. 2) A letter from the 2010-11 NACE President Tom Devlin and Executive Director Marilyn Mackes was sent to OPM Director John Berry regarding recommendations for incorporation into the regulations. (Of significant importance was NACE’s recommendation to avoid putting caps on the number of jobs that can come through the Pathways Program. The proposed regulations from OPM do not include caps.)
* November 2010: Internships – Recommended to the U.S. Department of Labor that it review criteria for unpaid internships.
