FREDERICKSBURG, Virginia (April 15, 2009)
- The International Parking Institute (IPI) is commemorating the 25th anniversary of their monthly publication, The Parking Professional.

Launched in January 1985, The Parking Professional is a trade journal that is an integral resource for parking professionals. It provides information regarding new technology, management practices and a general network of parking industry news and projects.
The Parking Professional has been hailed by the Wall Street Journal as "the [parking] industry's bible" and continues as a trusted source to inform and educate the parking and transportation professional.

Each month, the journal features news from all different segments within the parking industry such as construction, enforcement, revenue control, operations, and maintenance as well as articles written by industry thought leaders providing different fields of expertise pertaining to the industry.

"In reading this monthly journal, I find it to be the best source of news and information on parking related issues," said Tracey Bruch, CAPP, Parking Manager, City of Clearwater. "The articles provide great management ideas that I have successfully implemented in my own operation."

"We celebrate the work of all the previous staff and contributors who have helped make The Parking Professional the great publication it is today," said Shawn Conrad, CAE, Executive Director, IPI. "We can only hope that the next 25 years are full of the same opportunities, change and growth that these past years of publication have allowed!"

The special 25th anniversary issue will be available in May and will coincide with the 2009 IPI Conference & Expo in Denver May 17-20.
