National Parking Association Honors Parking Industry’s Most Influential Young Professionals
Inaugural class of 40 Under 40 to engage in parking leadership development
Washington, DC (July 30, 2015)—The National Parking Association (NPA) has selected its inaugural 40 Under 40 class of young professionals and up-and-coming leaders in the parking industry. The 40 chosen individuals will be inducted into the awards program at the NPA 2015 Convention & Exposition, August 31-September 3 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
A benefit of induction into NPA’s 40 Under 40 includes participation in a corresponding peer network group. The 40 Under 40 peer network provides inductees with an exclusive opportunity to meet each other and ask questions, discuss best practices and share ideas. The peer network will meet face-to-face at NPA conventions, have quarterly calls and contribute to an online forum on WeAreParking.org.
“NPA is extremely proud to recognize the impact of the parking industry’s best and brightest young professionals, and to also foster leadership development that will continue the industry’s innovation and growth,” said NPA President Christine Banning, MA, CAE. “The parking industry is undergoing dramatic change, especially in the area of technology, and young professionals are the forefront of this revolution. These 40 individuals represent major facets of the parking industry, and we are pleased to give them a platform to stand up and be counted.”
