Q: What’s better than a parking professional?

A: Lots of parking professionals.

I recently heard a group of directors from other associations commiserate about lack of volunteerism and committees that didn’t accomplish anything.That’s not a problem for IPI. Time and time again, I have seen the rewards of collaboration and information sharing that happens during every IPI conference call, committee meeting, gathering, and conference. We are always better together, and we have the most dynamic, eager, generous, and knowledgeable members it’s ever been my pleasure to know.

I’m pleased to welcome you to our shiny new blog, which is going to be all about community. We have a long and impressive list of contributing bloggers as we launch and I anticipate that list will become longer. Posts will cover a full spectrum of topics, touching on every segment of the industry, and will come from all kinds of parking professionals–maybe even you!

I hope you’ll take a minute now to sign up to receive the new Parking Matters® Blog in your email box. Thanks to the immediate-publishing nature of a blog, those who opt for direct updates will likely learn about news of the day and other information before anyone else.

Blog entries on sustainability and perceptions of parking, Twinkies, squirrels, preventing storefront crashes, customer service and other topics are already in the queue, and we’ll feature posts that relate to current events as well.  Have I piqued your interest? I hope so!
