WASHINGTON, D.C. — Committee Week, June 3-7, is where the RV industry comes together to nurture ideas and collectively chart the course for the RV Industry Association (RVIA).

The centerpiece of this year’s Congressional meetings will be findings from the RVs Move America Economic Impact Study that confirms the RV industry is a dynamic part of the U.S. economy. During sit-downs with U.S. Senators, Representatives and their staff, RVIA members will present detailed information on the impact of the RV industry at the national and state level as well as breakdowns of specific jurisdictions. Congressional members have long-asked for this type of data and will be eager to learn more about the study and the impact of the RV market on their district, a release from RVIA stated.
The activism and excitement of Advocacy Day carries into the evening with the House and Senate RV Caucus Reception, taking place from 5 – 7 p.m. RVIA members will join with special guests from the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Capitol Hill Staff, government agencies and allied trade associations to celebrate the RV industry and its impact on the economy. Organized over the past two years, the House and Senate RV Caucuses educate members of Congress on the value of the RV lifestyle, highlight the economic benefit the RV market provides across the country, and find common ground on matters of concern to the RV industry.
Following the reception, Capitol Hill Advocacy Day participants will end the day on a high note with the “RVs Move America Celebration” dinner at Bobby Van’s in downtown Washington, D.C. This gala event will be the perfect backdrop for RVIA members to toast a great day of advocacy and share stories about their adventures on Capitol Hill, the release stated.
RVIA will provide a number of online training opportunities in the weeks before the event; “drop in” Advocacy Day training all afternoon on June 7, at The Mayflower hotel; and a full briefing the morning of the event. For more information or to register for the event, visit the Advocacy Day website or contact Monika Geraci at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 336.0154, ext. 318.
