These past two years have been challenging for all of us, but what I have seen is incredible perseverance. We have adapted to the “new” norm and won’t let this stop us from success!

As a relatively new employee of IPMI, I participated in my first IPMI conference and expo back in November.  Going into the conference I was super anxious, not knowing what to expect.  What I experienced was a sense of calm and comfort, with so many people passionate about the parking industry.  I received amazing mentorship and support and I felt a sense of belonging and camaraderie. The positive energy was contagious!

I am truly looking forward to our next conference in New Orleans and establishing many more memorable experiences and friendships.  Also, looking forward to a Beignet from Café du Monde, and the sound of some uplifting jazz music! What are you looking forward to?
