From The Desk of the President Carolinas Parking Association
Well it’s over!! The Carolinas Parking Association Conference at Sea Trail is in the history book, literally and figuratively. We had an outstanding turnout that set new records in the number of attendees and vendors. I want to thank everyone that was able to attend and for those that could not make it, we hope you will join us next year in Asheville, NC.
As we are winding down from a busy past few weeks the Board of Directors are taking a breather and attempting recover a little from all the planning and, yes, paying the bills. Those pesky items always seem too show up.
I want to personally thank all of the vendors who participated this year. We depend a lot on each and every one of you to make our conference a success and we hope that each one of you walked away with a lot of business cards and contacts for the coming months. Please plan on joining us again next year.
For all of our members from the municipalities, universities, state agencies, airports, hospitals, and the private sector we sincerely hope that each of you walked away with AT LEAST one idea (hopefully more) that you were able to take back to your organizations to enhance your operations. We had so many presentation submittals; we had to run a dual session, which is a large complement to our association that so many people want to get their information out to each of you.
We certainly hope this trend continues since our association is there to fill the gap between the IPI Conference for those that might not be able to attend. We are always looking for recommendations from our members and vendors to improve our presentations and/or conference.
Please feel to contact me or any other board member to discuss ideas and thoughts you might have for next year. The Board of Directors will be meeting in January to discuss several topics including the good, the bad, and the ugly about our previous conference to address those concerns and make sure the next conference is even more exciting to attend.
Last, but not least, I want to thank every Board member for their help this year. Everyone worked very hard to make this a record year.
