RVIA Elects New Officers, Approves FY2010 Budget

The RVIA Board of Directors re-elected Jim Sheldon, special assistant to the president at Monaco RV LLC, to serve as the association's Chairman of the Board for fiscal year 2010 during its meeting Sept. 14 in Hershey, Pa.


In addition, other officers elected to the RVIA Executive Committee included Gregg Fore of Dicor Corp. as First Vice Chairman; Doug Gaeddert of Forest River, Inc., as Second Vice Chairman; Bob Olson of Winnebago Industries as Treasurer; and Derald Bontrager of Jayco, Inc., as Secretary.  Chairman Ex Officio Carl Pfalzgraf of Atwood Mobile Products and RVIA President Richard Coon will also serve.  The Executive Committee's (pictured at right) one-year terms begin on Oct. 1.


"We are fortunate to have such an experienced, talented team in place to help lead the association and the industry as we begin to recover lost ground over the next year," said RVIA President Richard Coon.


In other actions at their meeting, the RVIA Board:


·    approved Derald Bontrager as Jayco’s representative on the Board of Directors. He will stand for re-election in next year’s association elections. He replaces Don Walter.

·    approved an $11.6 million dollar budget for fiscal year 2010.
