Organization and Activities

Beside the annual General Assembly and the Board meetings which are a decision-making body of our Association, we have 8 expert committees in charge of general affairs, financial affairs, planning, organization, legal affairs, research/management, public relations and technology, and work as one toward further development and improvement of parking industry and Members’ business.

We are also ready to introduce Members, in case of specific needs, to consultants and/or academic experts on the issues of the parking management.

Furthermore, we support Members through diverse activities, for instance as the newest topic, to play a role of industry’s representative to coordinate the group insurance coverage.
