Enclosed you will find the following materials for your information and use in preparing for the 2005 Tennessee Legislative Internship Program:
Please emphasize to your students that they must be registered voters of Tennessee to serve as legislative interns and that no regularly scheduled classes may be attended during the appointment period.
**** Also enclosed is a copy of the Uniform Policies Governing the Conduct of Legislative Interns. Each nomination for the program should be accompanied by the nominee's written acknowledgment, page 2 of the aforementioned documents, that he or she has read, understands and agrees to abide by the policies of the General Assembly if he or she is selected for the program.
The Academic Intern Committee would like for all legislative interns to have a working knowledge of American government and some basic preparation for their study of the Tennessee General Assembly. The Committee recommends that administrators of both "state" and "private" intern programs be encouraged to incorporate appropriate reading materials, including The Tennessee Blue Book published by the Secretary of State's office. The Tennessee Blue Book can be found online at http://www.state.tn.us/sos/blue. The Tennessee Web Page may also be useful for students to look over in preparation for their internship. The address is http://www.legislature.state.tn.us
