The Nominating Committee of the International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI) is pleased to announce the annual Call for Nominations for individuals interested in serving as members of the IPMI Board of Directors.
The Role of the IPMI Board of Directors
The IPMI Board of Directors sets strategic priorities for the organization, provides guidance on industry-specific projects, and offers direction on education, membership, outreach, allied partnerships, research, and the annual IPMI Parking & Mobility Conference & Expo, in addition to other responsibilities. Board members may be tasked to serve as co-chairs or volunteers for IPMI committees, task forces, and/or other initiatives, partnerships, and projects.
2024 Election and Open Positions
There are FIVE open seats on the IPMI Board of Directors for a two-year term beginning June 2024.
- FOUR seats will be elected from the general membership segments.
- ONE seat is reserved for a single board member representing one of these three segments: supplier, consultant, or commercial operator. The nominee from these segments who receives the most votes from the general membership will be elected.
