Herb Anderson, vice chairman and chief executive officer of Vancouver-based Impark, has been named chair-elect of the National Parking Association (NPA). Anderson was selected during a meeting of the NPA Executive Committee in New Orleans held earlier this month. He is expected to be elected to a two-year term as chair by the Board of Directors at NPA’s 57th Annual Convention and Expo to be held Sept. 15-18, 2008, in Las Vegas. NPA will also elect a new slate of officers at the convention.
Anderson has been a member of NPA since 1994 and has served as vice president since 2000. “I am honored to be named the chair-elect of the NPA,” said Anderson. “With the recent adoption of a five-year strategic plan, it’s an exciting time for the organization. I look forward to working with the Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and NPA members to bring the many initiatives contained in the plan to fruition.”
“Herb Anderson has been a great friend of NPA for a long time,” said Andrew Blair, NPA’s current chair. “His business acumen and parking industry expertise have been in invaluable asset to NPA. I know I will be leaving the association in great hands when I turn the gavel over to him in September.”
“The NPA staff and I are looking forward to working with Herb Anderson to further the initiatives outlined in our new strategic plan,” said Martin L. Stein, NPA president. “I know Herb will be a worthy successor to Andrew Blair, who, as the primary architect of the strategic plan, has been a true visionary.”
