MembershipslashDivisions & Annual Dues

 

Join the parking industry's most dynamic membership organization and start networking with your peers. Select your membership category from the following, then visit Join NPA to apply for membership:

Regular*

This division comprises owners and operators of private commercial parking facilities in the United States and Canada. If parking revenues represent your company's primary source of income, you must join as a Regular member. If your company derives its income from parking, but is a subsidiary of a non-parking company, the parking company subsidiary must join as a Regular member. Valet companies qualify for Regular membership. This is a corporate category that covers all full-time employees.

Annual Regular member dues are based on the following scale:

Locations Annual Dues
1 to 3 $395
4 to 99 $105 per location to a maximum of $4,200
100 to 249 Flat rate of $5,775
250 to 499 Flat rate of $7,350
500 to 749 Flat rate of $8,925
750 and over (maximum) Flat rate of $10,500

 

NPA's Board of Directors requests Regular members to complete and sign an annual worksheet certifying their number of locations or localities. Instead of locations, valet companies determine dues by their number of operating contracts. Information reported is based upon the honor system.
