The Intern will be encouraged to take classes through the University of Alberta's Faculty of Extension Government Studies: Local Authority Administration Program, known in the municipal world as NACLAA, but will be given the liberty to determine the best means for using their professional development budget. In addition to taking educational courses, the Intern will also be encouraged to attend conferences that best suit their job description and their fields of interest.
