Members, Friends and Colleagues:

Welcome to the Carolinas Parking Association! Many thanks to all our members, sponsors, exhibitors and volunteers who help make our annual Conference and Trade Show successful each year.  And special thanks to the International Parking Institute (IPI) for their ongoing support.

Letter from acting President, Paul Whetzel, CAPP (CPA Vice President – South Carolina)

Dear CPA Members:

I wanted to give the CPA members a brief update on our current Board of Directors (BOD), Annual Conference and other news about the association.  Over the past six months, the road for the BOD has been a bumpy one.  We have experienced a lot of change.  However, with a lot of change also comes great opportunities and growth potential!

As some of you may know, Dan Hofmann (Clemson University) resigned from President of the Carolina Parking Association. The BOD accepted his resignation and we wish Dan the best of luck!  This left the association without a President.  A few days later, Lynn Sylvia (Vice President of North Carolina) was involved in a serious automobile accident.  We wish Lynn all the best during her recovering and we look forward to her return to the BOD.

The BOD needed to fill Dan’s position, so we reached out to Dave Pitts, CPP, Director of Parking and Valet Services at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Dave comes to the BOD with a tremendous amount of experience.  We are excited that to have Dave part of the team.

Things are beginning to ramp up for the Annual Conference which will be held at the Embassy Suites Greenville Golf Resort & Conference Center in Greenville, SC, on September 28 – 30, 2016. Mark your calendars!  An email notification will be sent to CPA members when registration is open.

Another exciting announcement, CPA will be holding an International Parking Institute (IPI) Tactical Communication Training Session in Raleigh, NC, on Thursday, June 23, 2016. The trainer will be Cindy Campbell from IPI.  If you attended the Customer Service Class at last years conference, you know this is training opportunity that front line employees should not miss!  Details will be sent out shortly.

I would like to thank each CPA member for their continued support and commitment to this Association.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Greenville, SC!


Best Regards,

Paul Whetzel, CAPP

Vice President – South Carolina
