Pfalzgraf Honored as “Right Man in the Right Job at the Right Time”

RVIA members celebrated Carl Pfalzgraf’s service as Chairman of the Board during a luncheon held during RVIA’s Committee Week June 8 at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Incoming Chairman Jim Sheldon praised Pfalzgraf’s leadership during what he called “one of the most tumultuous and critical times in the history of our association.”  Sheldon said, “It is a testament to your leadership and resolve that under your guidance our association remained strong in the face of so many challenges.” He continued, “You were the right man, in the right job, at the right time. A time that called for bold and decisive leadership. Our association and industry were fortunate to have your steady hand at the wheel as you displayed many admirable qualities needed from a great leader.” 

Sheldon presented Pfalzgraf with an RVIA chairman’s ring and the gavel he used during his term. Pfalzgraf’s wife, Dottie, was also thanked for her support and given a crystal vase in appreciation. Past RVIA Chairmen Mel Adams and Walt Bennett presented Pfalzgraf with the Chairman’s Award plaque. On behalf of RVIA staff, RVIA President Richard Coon gave Pfalzgraf a scrapbook commemorating his term as chairman that includes photos, press clippings, and letters of congratulations from fellow RVIA board members.

Pfalzgraf concluded his heartfelt remarks by saying, “When you’re doing something you love, you never work a day in your life. I’ve never worked a day in my life.”
