Fulton County received grants for four internships as part of the 2017 Summer Georgia County Internship Program (GCIP). Two internships were awarded to the Department of Real Estate and Asset Management (DREAM) and two internships were awarded to the External Affairs Department. On May 30, 2017, Fulton County held a Meet and Greet for their interns where they received an official welcome by Fulton County staff, networked, heard overviews about various Fulton County departments, and learned about the value of internships. ACCG Director of Civic and Intergovernmental Affairs, David Hankerson and ACCG Research and Policy Development Director, Michele NeSmith, were asked to participate in the program by providing an overview of GCIP.

 During the program, the interns heard from County Manager, Dick Anderson; Special Manager to the Chairman for Community Engagement, Gloria Neal; Director of External Affairs, Jessica Corbitt; Grant Management Office for the Finance Department, Angela Ash; Deputy Human Resources Director, Stacey Jones; and Roy Estell (Program Manager), Tim Diamond (Real Estate Division), and Joe Davis (Asset Management Division) of the DREAM. Time was also dedicated in the program to allow the interns to introduce themselves to the attendees. Following the program, a staff lunch was provided where additional Fulton County staff were on hand to welcome the new interns.

This summer, Meera Gorjala and Marcus Gamble will be working with the External Affairs Department. Gorjala, who is currently attending the University of Southern California as an Environmental Studies and Policy, Planning, and Development major will be working with legislative staff to help monitor legislative issues for the county. Gamble, a Mass Communications major at Clark Atlanta University, will be working with communications staff on their TV programming and communications needs. Yuming "Maggie" Zou is an Integrated Facility and Property Management major at Georgia Tech. Zou will be working with DREAM on facilities management projects. A second intern will be joining her in the department in June.

Funding for the GCIP is made available through the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation. For more information on the Foundation, visit our website at
