BOCA RATON, Fla. — The RV Industry Association announced today that the association’s annual meeting, scheduled for March 1 to 3, in Boca Raton, Fla., will be re-launched as the RV Leadership Conference.
The new event will be a members-only forum for RV industry leaders looking for expanded and impactful networking and educational opportunities. It is designed to encourage both top level management as well as the next generation of leaders to attend, the release noted.
“RVIA is a leading voice of the RV industry,” said Liz Crawford, RVIA’s senior vice president of trade shows and events. “As such, the events we host are critical in helping develop future leaders, nurture talent and provide a place to share best practices and network.
“The RV Leadership Conference will bring together members and help develop a deeper understanding of critical industry and association issues by engaging the key players from all segments of the association,” she added. “We hope to help members reach into their companies and provide those ‘next-gen’ leaders with the keys for success.”
The event opens March 1, with meetings of RVIA’s Executive Committee from 8 a.m. to noon, and board of directors from noon to 6 p.m. A gala welcome reception for all attendees is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m.
