Ruth Beaman and Colleen Niese shepherded their Women in Parking group to its first convention following the PIE show in Chicago last week. More than 140 attended their opening dinner and reception, with over 100 staying on the next day for seminar s and networking. It was a super event and I was honored to be given an award, as a person who has given some minor support to the group. I was told that if I wanted to start such a group, all that needed be done was to get a room, invite a bunch of women, and then shut up. I’m happy to say the plan worked extremely well.
They are, after only a couple of years, reaching fame internationally with a chapter in Australia, and a meeting here this week at Intertraffic.
Way to go women in parking.
