National Parking Association Adopts Five-Year Strategic Plan

The National Parking Association (NPA), a parking industry trade association based in Washington, DC, has adopted a five-year Strategic Plan that will guide the organization through 2013.

The plan, which was unanimously adopted by the Board of Directors, calls for four main initiatives: boost the visibility of the NPA, enhance the value of NPA membership, increase membership services, and adopt best practices in association management. To develop these initiatives, NPA will use a cadre of volunteer members who will work on various task forces.

“Active and engaged volunteerism will play in a significant role in achieving our Strategic Plan goals,” said Andrew Blair, NPA Chairman. “This ‘volunteer manager’ model is one that I am deeply committed to, for I believe that if our Association is to continue to grow in visibility and influence, we must engage the membership in active leadership and action. By taking ownership of the Strategic Plan, NPA members will benefit through a stronger, more viable and more influential association.”

“I am both pleased and excited that we will be bringing an important balance between professional and volunteer leadership positions as well as creating meaningful opportunities for all members to contribute,” said NPA President Martin L. Stein. “This strategic plan enables us to further build on an already solid foundation to strengthen our association and better serve our membership and our industry.”
