We develop certification and credentialing programs, open-sourced standards, professional leadership and promote sustainability within the parking and urban development world. Based in Hartford, CT and working internationally, GPC works at the intersection of parking, green building, clean technology, renewable energy, smart grid infrastructure, urban planning and sustainable mobility.

Each GPC intern works with an internship coordinator to identify an “internship project” that aligns with their career goals and personal interests. This project is the focus of the individual’s internship. “Internship projects” are currently available for the following disciplines: database design and construction, product and program evaluations, website development, social media growth, environmental studies, educational outreach, government relations, and business communications.
