Seize the City

Seize the City has gone virtual!

In light of social distancing recommendations, Seize the City will occur for summer 2020 via LinkedIn. Seize the City is a series open to all interns and college students working, remotely or in person, in Greater Des Moines (DSM). Beginning in June and ending the first week of August, the series will feature virtual presentations from community leaders and opportunities to network with fellow interns and local executives while learning about the culture that makes DSM unique.

For any intern interested in participating in the summer Seize the City program, join the Seize the City LinkedIn group. For anyone interested in additional information, contact Program Manager Sidney Pezley.
