Public Relations Internship
Duties. Since the MWA is a small organization, interns will be involved in all aspects of public relations.
o Media Relations – Work with staff to build strong relationships with media, including:
• Developing a current press list.
• Developing news releases and alerts for to announce news and events.
• Creating new opportunities for editorial placement in local and regional publications.

o Event Management:

Governmental Affairs Internship
Scope of Internship. While the MWA is a small organization, the legislative and regulatory issues it encounters are often high-profile, and life-threatening to the small wineries it represents. MWA is charged with protecting the interests of the wineries it represents, and thus, it must be vigilant during the state General Assembly’s legislative session every January through April.
Much planning goes into the MWA’s work for legislative sessions. Planning begins in September in most years, though some larger issues are multi-year efforts. There are some years when MWA has issues/legislation is has sponsored, and in other years MWA must simply keep watch to ensure no legislation is passed that would compromise the industry.
Maryland wineries are regulated by the State via the Office of the Comptroller, and by the liquor boards in their residing county. Maryland’s alcohol law has a reputation as being one of the worst in the country – and thus, it’s tumultuous and always under duress by special interest groups.

o Governmental Affairs/Relations – Work with staff to manage government and public relations, including:
• Attending MWA Governmental Affairs conference calls (weekly during the legislative session).
• Developing single-issue policy statements for various audiences.

• Updating our “action center” if members are needed to testify in Annapolis or attend important functions.
