156276601652306.pngThe RVIA says there is still time to submit nomination in for the RVIA's 2020 board of directors term. The Governance Committee is accepting nominations until July 26, 2019, to serve in the seven seats up for reelection for the 2020-2022 term. You may nominate a colleague or yourself for a three-year position on the board, set to begin Jan. 1, 2020. The open positions are:

• Three supplier representatives
• Two manufacturer representatives
• One park model manufacturer representative
• One at-large representative

The board of directors is the highest level of authority in the association's overall organizational structure and is responsible for setting and overseeing strategy and policy related to critical topics such as standards, marketing, government affairs, trade shows, industry education and association finances. We are seeking strong candidates from member companies to uphold these responsibilities.

At the June 2018 board meeting, the board made the decision to move the association's financials from a fiscal year to a calendar year. This also has implications on the election cycle. As a result, the current positions listed above have terms that extend until Dec. 31, 2019 rather than Sept. 30, 2019 as it has in previous years.

UPDATE: The Point of Contact Has Changed
To nominate yourself or someone else, contact Bob Schmitt at rschmitt@rvia.org. Elections will take place during the month of September and the winners will be announced in October. All winning candidates will be expected to attend the next board of directors meeting on Nov. 12, taking place during the RV Dealers Association's 2019 Convention and Expo in Las Vegas for transition and orientation training.
