The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016. The study found that the RV industry contributes about $49.7 billion in economic output or 0.28 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. Through its production and distribution linkages, the industry impacts firms in 426 of the 440 sectors of the United States economy.

Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

Canadian Webinar Explores CASL Compliance

Tue Feb 27, 2018

151551687751691.pngComplying with the Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL) has been no easy feat, says the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association of Canada. In the three-plus years since its rollout, CASL continues to cause headaches for organizations of all shapes and sizes, in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors.

While the House of Commons' Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology continues to debate changes to the law that could make it easier to follow, RVDA Canada is hoping its members can avoid the pitfalls that exist today.

RVDA Canada, together with the Canadian Society of Association Executive (CSAE), will host a webinar on CASL compliance from 2 to 3 pm. March 21. Dealers can join privacy lawyers, Andrew Buck and Adam Herstein of Pitblado Law in the webinar about CASL compliance to learn:

• Areas of compliance that are in the crosshairs of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
• Hot topics Canada’s legal community is seeing in the trenches.
• Practical tips (and things to avoid) to stay on the right side of the line.

This is an ideal opportunity to ensure your organization’s compliance, to seek clarification regarding grey areas of the legislation, and to gain insight into CASL’s impact moving forward, according to RVDA Canada.

Webinar cost for CSAE members is $80, the non-member rate: is $125.A $25 cancellation fee will apply to all cancelled registrations. Substitutions are permitted without penalty.
