Letter from the President  


Larry CohenDear MAPA Members,


I'm pleased to report that the MAPA spring event, Parking & Baseball, was the largest attended Lunch & Learn in MAPA's history.  A special thanks to Ray Stoner and Laz Parking for sponsoring the event and giving an informative presentation. 



In May, Mark Pace from Montgomery College, in Rockville, MD, was appointed to the MAPA Board of Directors.  Mark has over 32 years of experience in the parking industry in both the public and private sectors. He currently manages the Montgomery College Parking & Transportation Department. Mark is a member of the International Parking Institutes Advisory Council, Sustainability Committee and the Parking Matters Committee. Mark fills a vacancy on the MAPA Board that was the result of the relocation of Thad Caraway of Standard Parking to FL.  We wish Thad the best of luck in his move and transition.


Be sure to Mark Your Calendars for the MAPA fall conference.  The Keynote Address will cover the Shoup Model presented by Michael Klein, Albany Parking Authority.  Additional topics to be covered in this year's conference are; Cloud Computing, Pay-by-Cell, Parking Trends, Mobile Apps and Web-Based Marketing.  We hope you will join us on October 24 at the University of Baltimore.


Don't forget to register for the MAPA Annual Golf Tournament at Diamond Ridge Golf Club.  The tournament will be held next Friday, June 29. Registration information is below.  Thank you to all of our sponsors!


Looks like the dog days of summer have arrived. I hope you all stay cool and enjoy your summer vacations.
