Speakers Will Examine RV Market, Health Care Law at Committee Week

Committee Week attendees will hear about the outlook for the RV market and the impact of the pending Supreme Court decisions on health care reform in two presentations taking place during the  Joint Committee Luncheons on Monday, June 11, and Tuesday, June 12.

RV Market Outlook

Dr. Richard Curtin, director of the Consumer Research Center at the University of Michigan, will provide his outlook for RV wholesale shipments during remarks at Monday’s Joint Committee Luncheon, taking place from 12 noon – 1:30 p.m.

This will include projections for the year-end 2012 total as well as his first estimate for shipment numbers in 2013.  He will also take questions about the RV market and general economic climate.

Curtin authors RVIA’s RV Roadsigns, the association’s quarterly forecasting newsletter and has directed RVIA’s RV consumer demographic research since 1980.

What Will the Supreme Court Decision on Health Care Law Mean to Your Business?

The Supreme Court decisions on the health care reform case, which will be announced by the end of June, will have a significant impact on the small and medium-sized companies doing business in the RV industry. 

At the Joint Committee Luncheon, taking place from 12 noon – 1:30 p.m.  on Tuesday, June 12, health care law and policy expert Bruce Merlin Fried (pictured above) will brief attendees on the business ramifications of a decision that upholds the law as well as one that overturns it fully or partially. Fried is a partner in SNR Denton’s Health Care practice in Washington, DC where he counsels and represents health plans, physician organizations, hospital groups, consumer organizations, health care information technology companies, pharmaceutical and biotech companies.   He has been recognized by Chambers USA and ExpertGuides as one of the nation’s leading health care attorneys.

In addition to Mr. Fried’s remarks, Mark Weller (pictured left) will lead a secondary discussion on the provision of the law that exempts people opposed to buying health coverage for religious reasons, including the Amish.  Weller, who serves as RVIA’s federal lobbyist, has more than 25 years of public affairs and advocacy experience, much of it focusing on health care issues. Mark is a partner in SNR Denton's Public Policy and Regulation practice and he heads the firm’s Strategic Communications team.
