CAPP Compadres

By Casey Jones, CAPP

I’d like to introduce you to Tiffany Brander. Tiffany works for the Missoula Parking Commission (MPC), an Accredited Parking Organization in Missoula, Mont. The MPC is currently undertaking a downtown master plan update, a design-build parking garage is underway that the MPC is preparing to operate, and with the retirement of former Director Rod Austin, Tiffany has assumed the director duties as well as many tasks from her former role as administrative services senior manager. To say Tiffany has her hands full is an understatement.

But another thing you should know about Tiffany is that she is undaunted by her heavy load. She’s focused, driven and steady. On top of her old and new duties, Tiffany is working to become a CAPP. I met Tiffany through the CAPP Mentor Program and we’re on a path together to help her earn her CAPP.

IPMI’s CAPP Mentor Program connects CAPPs in the industry with those aspiring to earn the credential. Together, the mentor and mentee identify professional development goals, build knowledge, and prepare for the CAPP exam, and Tiffany and I would like to share our CAPP Mentor Program experience through a series of blog posts. You’ll hear next from Tiffany about why she’s pursuing her CAPP and why she applied for the Mentor Program.

Casey Jones, CAPP, is vice president with TimHaahs.

  1. Tiffany, congratulations on your new position in Missoula, one of my favorite towns. Go Griz! My family has a long history in Missoula. My uncle was Tom Duncan, and his father Asa Duncan built the Dixon Duncan block in downtown Missoula. (http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMMZ4F_Dixon_Duncan_Block_Missoula_MT

    My cousin John Duncan lived on Taylor Street until he passed away a couple of years ago. My grandfather moved the family there in the early 1900s, and my aunt Elinor lived there for many years when she worked for the Forest Service.

    I’ve just published a new book I think you’ll find interesting. It has chapters on parking. You can get it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1724662732.

    Let me know if I can help you in any way.

    PS If you like to ride horses, you may know of the Connolly saddle. They were built in Montana by my grandfather John Connolly and his sons. There still is a Connolly Saddle Shop in Billings.
