RVIA’s Annual Membership Meeting to be Held During Committee Week

RVIA’s Annual Membership Meeting and Industry Forecast Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, June 9 from noon to 2 p.m. during Committee Week at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The session will include reports from RVIA Chairman of the Board Jim Sheldon, RVIA President Richard Coon and RVIA Treasurer Don Walter.

In addition Dr. Richard Curtin, director of the Consumer Research Center at the University of Michigan, will provide his outlook for the RV market for the upcoming year.  Curtin has directed RVIA’s RV Consumer Demographic Profile research since 1980 and authors the association’s quarterly RV Roadsigns newsletter.

“Like so many industries, the RV industry is having a tough year,” said Coon. “It will be especially important this year to hear what Dr. Curtin has to say about the current state of the nation’s economy and the RV industry’s prospects for the coming months.”

RVIA’s Annual Meeting, at which the Membership Meeting is usually held, was canceled this year due to economic concerns. With the association’s bylaws requiring that a Membership Meeting be held each year, the decision was made to hold an abbreviated event at Committee Week.

In addition to the Annual Membership Meeting and a full slate of committee meetings, other popular events taking place during the course of RVIA's Committee Week include:

•  Chairman’s Luncheon - Committee Week participants will gather for a Chairman’s Luncheon Monday, June 8 to honor Carl Pfalzgraf's service as Chairman of the Board from 2006 - 2008.

•  Advocacy Day –RVIA members will participate in a pre-Capitol Hill briefing beginning at 8:00 a.m. before descending on Capitol Hill for the seventh annual Advocacy Day on Wednesday, June 10.  

Most committee meetings are open to guest attendance; however anyone planning to attend a meeting for a committee for which they are not a member should contact the RVIA staff liaison or the committee chairman for information on the guest policy.

All members attending Committee Week are encouraged to join the Public Relations Committee at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, June 9 for a presentation of the latest edition of RVTV: The Best in RV News and Entertainment.  This roundup of video highlights offers timely and positive evidence of the RV industry’s continued favorable image and popularity in the media.

For more information or to register for Committee Week, contact Doreen Cashion in the Meetings and Shows Division at (703) 620-6003 (324) or dcashion@rvia.org.
