NEW YORK-- The New York Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI-NY) today announced that it is seeking New York City area partners who can offer summer internships in the fields of investor relations, public relations or corporate communications for the chapter's Logler 9/11 Internship Program.

The NIRI-NY 9/11 Logler Memorial Internship Program is sponsored on a volunteer basis by NIRI-NY to provide meaningful summer internship opportunities to the children of victims of the 9/11 attacks. The chapter's internship program was re-dedicated by NIRI-NY in memory of chapter member Elizabeth (Beth) Logler, Vice President-Investor Relations of eSpeed, who lost her life in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Since dedicating the program, NIRI-NY has successfully placed interns with a number of leading companies in the greater New York City area, including Acorda Pharmaceuticals, Acquire Media, Altria, BGC Partners, Burson-Marstellar, Capital Bridge, Catalyst Global, EDGAR Online, Hain Celestial, Henry Schein, PepsiCo, and Veeco Instruments.

Together with our internship sponsors and the recognized 9/11 charities Tuesday's Children and Silver Shield, we are proud to provide internship opportunities for these students as they begin their careers," said Eleanor Powell, President of NIRI-NY and Executive Director, Investor Relations of The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.
