RVAA President Susan Carpenter has sent a letter to the members of the association about the 2017 Executive Conference, held at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, California during the week of Aug. 14-18. The following is a portion of the letter she has penned to the members.
"Our event is still the only RV conference with guaranteed face-time between distributors and suppliers. Our Executive Conference is expected to attract members from around the country - all looking to conduct business, catch up with friends and colleagues and learn more about everything that's going on in today's dynamic RV industry.
The RVAA Conference Committee is developing an exciting program, including plenty of opportunities for you to network, learn and have some fun - in addition to business appointments.
Registration opens on March 20, as will our hotel reservation link, which will be ready to accept room reservations at your convenience. I encourage you to visit our website often leading up to the Conference to view updates on the hotel, agenda and our numerous sponsorship opportunities.
We hope the RV show season has and continues to go well for everyone. On behalf of the RVAA Board of Directors and myself, thank you for your valued membership. Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you any time throughout the year."
