Letter from the President


2014 has already gotten off to a great start for MAPA.  The Board of Directors met in January for its' annual planning meeting. The entire year of events is planned, so MAPA can begin letting membership know immediately about the exciting educational and networking programs available throughout the year.


The Board of Directors election results are in and I'm pleased to welcome Nick Miller, President of Parking Panda to the board.  Nick brings a fresh perspective and parking expertise to MAPA. 


MAPA's Annual Parking and Baseball event is planned for May 7 and the Summer Golf Tournament will be held on June 27. Details can be found below.


As some of you know I also serve as an IPI Board Member. Elections are coming up, so for those of you who are also IPI members I would appreciate your support.  Here's my formal biography for your reference. Many thanks in advance.


As always please feel free to contact myself or any of the other board members with your ideas and suggestions.  I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming MAPA event.
