Barbara Chance – a worthy parking consultant

In more news from Pittsburgh, the IPI recognized three
parking professionals who have made outstanding contributions to the
profession. Parking Consultant Dr. Barbara Chance and University of California/Irvine’s
Ronald Fleming shared the Parking Professional of the Year award. You will no
doubt remember that Barbara was one of the speakers at the Australian Parking Association’s
biennial convention held in Sydney in November 2010 and therefore we are very
happy for her in receiving this honour.

Barbara J. Chance, Ph.D., founder of CHANCE Management
Advisors, Inc., is known industry wide for her parking and transportation
expertise and her many contributions to the parking industry. Earlier in her
parking career, Chance shattered the glass ceiling as the first director of an
on-street parking program in Philadelphia and as the first woman to hold such a
position in a major city. At CHANCE Management Advisors, she has overseen all
of the firm’s projects since 1984, working both nationally and globally to
provide parking and transportation consulting services to medical centers,
universities, governments, hospitals, developers and other entities. Chance was
the recipient of IPI’s Chairman Award in 2010.

Ronald Fleming, Director, Parking and Transportation
Services at the University of California at Irvine, also received the 2011
Parking Professional of the Year Award. Fleming was recognized for his service
as a tireless advocate for innovative and cost-effective programs for the
37,000 faculty, staff and students who work at or attend UCI. Fleming began his
parking career as a student parking attendant and rose through the ranks to his
appointment as director in 2009. He has received numerous accolades and awards
for his environmental initiatives, which include his Strategic Mobility Plan,
which provides incentives for carpooling; Project Greenlight, which is designed
to reduce emissions and vehicle miles traveled on campus; and ZotWheels, an
exemplary automated bikeshare program that others are planning to replicate.
Fleming’s environmentally sustainable programs have reduced traffic on and off
campus, maintained the right balance of parking spaces to parking needs, and
eliminated the additional cost of new lots or structures.

The award for 2011 Supervisor of the Year went to
Andrea Loughner, Parking Office Manager at the University of Pittsburgh.
Loughner has worked with the University of Pittsburgh for the past 23 years, 15
of them as parking office manager. She is credited with creating and
maintaining a professional environment there, and has also established a new
system and database with payment information, which has improved customer

Parking & Traffic Consultants would like to congratulate all the award
winners from this years’ conference.
