The various events held by Municipal Affairs, such as Executive Week were a highlight of the internship. The networking opportunities provided during these events were incredible. It was also a lot of fun spending time with the other interns and getting to know them. I met some of my closest friends through the internship program.
Working with my mentors at Leduc County had an impactful experience. I was lucky to work with some great people at the County who all were extremely helpful. They taught me not only how to be a good municipal planner, but also how to deal with some of the difficulties planners face working at a municipality.
