    Parking Organization - A parking organization is an entity that operates, manages, owns or leases parking facilities (defined as: parking lot(s), garage(s), ramps, carparks, etc. and on-street parking spaces). Example: ABC airport has parking that is close to the airport and also runs multiple airports within the state. Member pricing: Application Fee ($250); Accreditation Fee ($2,500). OR Multi-Site Parking Organization - A parking organization may operate, manage, own or lease parking sites that are not in close physical proximity. Despite geographic distance, sites are managed with common policies and procedures by the same parking organization. In this case, they may be included in the same APO application. Example: ACME University operates, manages, owns or leases parking facilities that are not in close proximity, for instance in separate cities. Member pricing: Application Fee ($250); Accreditation Fee ($2,500, including first three facilities) plus $500 per additional facility.
    Application fees are due at the time of application ($250 IPI member/$750 non-member). Accreditation fees for the three year accreditation ($2,500 IPI member/$4,500 non-member) are due at the time of submission of complete documentation package. Please note that payment and completed application must be received before candidate may begin the accreditation process.
