The Texas Parking Association 2010 Roundtable and Networking Session was held on July 26, 2010 at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.  We would like to thank Roy Dilks, Parking/Traffic Control Supervisor and the TAMU-CC Police Department for hosting this event. We would also like to thank our presenters:

  • Bret Johnson, Senior Sales Consultant with First National Merchant Solutions, LLC for their Credit Card Processing Presentation;
  • Michael Civitelli, Consultant with Walker Parking Consultants/Walker Restoration Consultants for his presentation on Operational Benefits of Innovative Parking Solutions; and
  • Liliana Rambo, CAPP, Assistant Director of Parking Management Division Administration and Regulatory Affairs Dept. for City of Houston on the Pros and Cons of Outsourcing Parking Operations.

We also thank Walker Parking Consultants for providing one of the door prizes for this event. All presentations and additional information will be provided on the TPA website. We hope that all who attended enjoyed this time of education and networking.
