The Pennsylvania Recreation Vehicle and Camping Association (PRVCA) will host its second annual Leadership Conference Jan. 25-29, including topics that Executive Director Heather Leach said are “timely.”
PRVCA launched the first conference in-person in January 2020, before the Covid pandemic took hold. This year’s virtual format will feature a good lineup, Leach said, despite current circumstances.
“We are [usually] focused on dealerships, tech training or other departments in service writing and warranty,” Leach said. “Last year, we decided we need to branch out and offer something to other members who are non-dealers. There’s people in dealerships that could benefit from different types of training outside of the stuff we previously offered.”
The virtual conference’s educational sessions will be split over the five days to decrease screen time, Leach said.
“The virtual [format] will create more opportunity to take advantage of it, as well,” she said. “There is really an unlimited number of people that could attend.”
Last year’s event had 30 attendees, she said, and the association expects a good turnout this year. Registration opened last week with a Jan. 19 deadline. Close to 20 people are currently enrolled, Leach said.
“We are hoping we have more attendees than last year,” Leach said. “The topics are timely for shifting gears and changing lanes, and I cannot think of anything that applies more.”
The speaker lineup will feature Grand Design RV’s President and CEO Don Clark, who will discuss his thoughts about leadership at 1 p.m. EST Jan. 28.
Other sessions include:
10 a.m. EST Jan. 25: “Mastering Your Memory” by professional speaker and entrepreneur Tyler Enslin. This session will cover unique methods to increase memory skills to “extraordinary levels.”
1 p.m. EST Jan. 26: “Shifting Gears & Changing Lanes” by author, consultant and professional speaker Jay Gubrud. Attendees will learn tools to navigate change by enabling people to accept, confront fears and move forward in a positive direction.
10 a.m. EST Jan. 27: “Achievement Now!” by Enslin. This session will discuss a program made to help people cultivate traits such as confidence, productivity, consistent habits, people skills and more.
10 a.m. EST Jan. 29: “G.R.I.P.E.” by “Complaint Free” movement founder and trainer Will Bowman. As a keynote presentation, Bowman will share his system to identify people who complain and how to help decrease complaints.
