Join IPMI for our next online Shoptalk diving into cars, cash, and financial impacts to operations. Open to all, moderator Tiffany Smith will lead the group in discussions centering on three key questions. First, discuss of the impact to the short-term financial picture, including revenue, plans to streamline operations to cover losses, and anticipated changes to programs and policies for recovery. Second, address changes to consumer and patron behavior, your expectations of demand in the immediate and longer term, and potential medium-term changes in curbside (and off-street parking) management. Finally, explore adaptions to policies, programs, staffing, customers, and tech to prepare for future operations.

We understand this is an extremely busy time and will record the online shoptalk and distribute to all members and colleagues.  If you have a question or would like to share something that has worked for your organization in advance, please email Fernandez@parking-mobility.org.

Talking About COVID-19

covid-19 illustration of the virusBy Casey Jones, CAPP

Our industry hasn’t faced anything like the COVID-19 virus before and it’s affecting the way we all work and live outside of work. Working from home, not being able to work from home, refund requests, health concerns for our employees, growing or shrinking parking use depending on our sectors—the challenges keep coming.

IPMI will host two sector-specific, online Shoptalks for industry members to talk about COVID-19 and their operations, share ideas, ask questions, and brainstorm—and just connect with each other:
  • Tuesday, March 24, 12:00 p.m. Eastern. Online Shoptalk for Municipalities & Transportation Providers: COVID-19 and Our Industry’s Response.
  • Tuesday, March 24, 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Online Shoptalk for Universities and Campuses: COVID-19 and Our Industry’s Response.
Please join me for these free events—advance registration required. Click here to register and I’ll look forward to talking with you Tuesday.
Casey Jones, CAPP, is senior parking & mobility planner with DESMAN. He will moderate IPMI’s free online Shoptalks about COVID-19 and our industry on Tuesday, March 24.
