Gathering Together Despite the Distance

man participating in an online shoptalkSeveral hundred parking and mobility professionals gathered together in two virtual IPMI Shoptalks last week, to talk about COVID-19 and operations: human resources challenges, shifting duties, curb management, revenue, garage management, and a host of other topics. They did it online during live, video-enabled events, and we invite you to join us for more.

Tomorrow, we’ll host two more events:

These online Shoptalks are moderated by industry leaders and, just like in-person Shoptalks, are designed for conversation and idea/information exchange. They are free to all industry members; pre-registration is required (click here to register for this week’s events). Recordings are available, along with micro-learning sessions and other resources, on our YouTube channel. And more Shoptalks are planned for the future as we all navigate this challenging time together; get complete information on these and other resources here.

We hope you’ll join us for these events and that you’ll reach out if we can help you in any way. We’re going to stick together, as we always do. Brighter days are ahead.
