CFEA continues to grow and evolve as an organization as the events industry moves into a more dominate mainstream presence. Here in Colorado we enjoy a robust and busy events schedule throughout the year. To support this ever growing industry, many colleges and universities across the state have launched event planning degree programs and/or hospitality majors.
This is great news for our industry as we now have a reliable resource to find skilled, motivated and experienced individuals to join our event production teams. In an effort to provide real time learning opportunities for students and offer highly qualified volunteers and staff to our members, CFEA has launched a student program of our own which connects students to event producers.
We currently work with students from Metro State University and Arapahoe Community College. Strategic partnerships with additional educational institutions are in the works.
These enthusiastic students are looking for experience via internship, volunteerism and employment. If you are looking for support at your event and want to help groom the next generation of industry leaders, click here to submit your request.
