Kelman Internship Program Opens Recruitment for 2012-2013

Central Atlanta Progress, Inc. (CAP) is a private, nonprofit corporation of Atlanta business leaders, property owners, and institutions working with each other and with government since 1941 to help build a better city center. CAP carries out research and planning and acts as a catalyst for a wide range of programs and projects for the improvement of Downtown Atlanta. Our affiliate organization, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID), funds major programs in transportation, capital improvements, public safety, cleanliness and marketing. 

The internship is awarded in honor of Paul B. Kelman, FACIP’s 22 years of leadership at Central Atlanta Progress and upon his retirement in 2010 the organization renamed the internship program, the Kelman Internship.

Glatting Mentoring Award given by the Georgia Tech School of City and Regional Planning.
