Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online - never send money to a potential employer.
DescriptionThe Stadium Managers Association is dedicated exclusively to stadium operations and promotes professional, efficient and state-of-the-art management of stadiums around the world. Our members are administrators and operations personnel from teams, colleges and universities, facility managers and public sports authorities, and suppliers to the industry. It is a member driven organization where stadium managers and vendors collaborate on issues and solutions that enhance the safety, profitability, and service of their facilities.
The 2017 Seminar will be held in Huntington Beach from February 5th – 10h. Interns must plan to arrive at the host hotel, Hyatt Huntington Beach, by early afternoon Saturday, February 4th and stay until Friday, February 10th. Intern responsibilities at the Seminar are detailed in the enclosed volunteer agreement.
SMA Staff will supervise the students who are accepted into the program. Professors of chosen interns are also encouraged to attend the Seminar, but will not be responsible for any program supervision.
Student applicants must be at least 21 years of age with junior, senior, or graduate student standing, a minimum 2.5 GPA, and a focus in stadium management or an industry related field. SMA will provide hotel rooms, conference registration, and some meals to student interns. The cost of airfare and/or ground transportation to and from the seminar will be the responsibility of the student.

ResponsibilitiesInterns will assist with set up, staffing, and tear down of attendee registration desk, and all other Seminar events and educational sessions, including an off site stadium tour. Responsibilities include handling and watching over expensive equipment that will require vigilance and care to prevent damage. Some of this equipment will require lifting and set up with SMA staff direction.
Part of the benefit for you in working the Seminar is to be able to learn from some of our great speakers and league officials. While you will be shifting on and off of the registration desk, we’d like for you to be in as many sessions as possible. Please review the agenda and let Kelsey know the top couple of sessions you’d like to attend and review, and we’ll try to work around everyone’s requests. There will be a student breakout session that all of you will be able to attend. You’ll attend the opening session each day.
We’d like to introduce you at our opening session on with the start of Seminar with a 30 second video (of you and by you!) that we will incorporate into our production. Kelsey will give you details and a deadline.
Review the agenda and ask questions at our conference call meetings. Review the attendee list when it is available in late January, and think specifically about who you would like to meet.
Interns are expected to dress “professional casual” both on and off shift. Long pants and collared shirts are appropriate. Jeans, shorts, t-shirts, exercise clothing, and casual tops are not acceptable. Casual and clean comfortable shoes are fine, but no flip-flops.
You are there to represent yourself professionally to 500 potential employers. If you have any doubt whether an item of clothing is appropriate, chances are it is not.
RequirementsStudent applicants must be at least 21 years of age with junior, senior, or graduate student standing, a minimum 2.5 GPA, and a focus in stadium management or an industry related field.
Attend two hour-long orientation conference calls scheduled in the months leading up to the Seminar.
Interns must plan to arrive at the host hotel, Hyatt Huntington Beach by early afternoon Saturday, February 4th and stay until Friday, February 10th.
Interns will be expected to work during all shifts as directed for registration, production, fundraising, and catering, beginning on Saturday, February 4th with assembly of monitors and pre-registration.
There will be some lifting and carrying involved with this position, consisting mostly of setting up and moving video monitors and boxes, up to 75 pounds.
