New York State Parking & Transportation Association (NYSPTA) Fall Conference & Expo

NYSPTA Fall Conference, October 12-14, 2021, Watkins Glen, NY

We are thrilled to bring our members and industry professionals from throughout the region together for a smaller, more intimate event in the scenic New York destination of the Finger Lakes. The conference will be an opportunity for attendees to reconnect and reflect on the industry over the past year and a half, and look ahead to the opportunities, prospects, and expectations for the future as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be a great program to send your frontline and mid-management employees to take advantage of valuable educational and professional development opportunities they may have missed over the past 18 months.

Stay tuned for additional details. Registration will open soon! If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact us. Follow NYSPTA on social media for the latest updates on upcoming events and initiatives!

Changing for the Right Reasons In New York State

By Jason M. Jones

During the last year, the New York State Parking Association (NYSPA) has been working on a rebranding campaign, complete with a new website, enhanced social media pages, and a name change. As the parking industry continues to evolve, we needed to be sure we were not the last coin-operated meter left standing.  We conducted surveys, made phone calls, reached out through emails, and discussed in-person with association members to determine the best path to take. We also reached out to founding members, past presidents, and other associations that recently transitioned away from just having parking in their names and added either transportation or mobility. These decisions cannot be made in isolation and any association is only as strong as it members and the research they conduct.

Based on our thorough outreach and an overwhelming association member approval vote, we have become the New York State Parking & Transportation Association (NYSPTA). We are very excited to begin this new chapter after 25+ years as NYSPA and look forward to another 25 years. We have many events planned in 2019 including our Summer Retreat on June 25 in Syracuse and our annual conference/expo in historic Saratoga Springs, October 9-11.
