This is a huge commitment – in funding, time, and public relations. Be sure you are making the right decision and asking the right questions.
EV charger suppliers respond. Keep them honest. You ask the questions and get their perspective on the connected car, EV’s and Charging infrastructure. This hour and a half will prepare you with questions to ask, and a few answers, too.

Ethical Leadership: Doing What’s Right, Not What’s Easy
Speaker - Cindy Campbell, International Parking & Mobility Institute

Ethical Leadership: Doing What’s Right, Not What’s Easy - When leadership is done right, the leader is a role model – someone who communicates the importance of ethical standards and holds their team accountable to those standards. Done poorly, leadership can negatively impact the productivity and well-being of individual team members and be detrimental to the reputation and success of the entire organization.

Anyone can be promoted into a management role, but how do we develop the skill-sets necessary to be an ethical leader? This session will define the concepts and characteristics behind ethical leadership, why it matters, and offer practical ideas to help ensure your success.

MythBusters: Debunking the Parking Industry’s Biggest Myths
Speakers - Julie Dixon, Ben Verdugo and Allison von Ebers, Dixon Resources Unlimited

MythBusters: Debunking the Parking Industry’s Biggest Myths - “Just build more parking!”, “Paid parking will hurt local businesses!” “People will stop visiting downtown if they need to pay!”. In the parking industry, we hear myths from constituents every day about how the new parking management program will affect their city or town. As parking experts, we need to be prepared to effectively debunk the industry’s biggest myths. This presentation’s panel of experts will use a variety of case studies to break down the myths heard at the beginning of a proposed parking study and expose the truth behind the industry’s biggest myths. In this session, we will challenge the audience to think of ways to effectively communicate to the public that the beliefs they hold about parking may not always be reality. This session will prepare you to get ahead of parking myths and send a clear message about parking management strategies. It can be difficult to break through long-held beliefs in a community regarding parking, but this session will equip you with the leadership skills necessary to effectively challenge myths that communities may hold.
