A $3.96 million plan and budget for fiscal year 2022 was approved by the RVDA Board of Directors during its June 10 meeting in Merrifield, Virginia.
The board is “looking to the future” as it readies for the in-person 2021 RV Dealers Convention/Expo, slated in November. The association stated it is working to help RV dealers maintain momentum as the industry experiences a record sales spike.
In addition to its budget, the board made plans to explore expanding eligibility for dealer branch members to serve the association’s Board of Delegates. A task force plan was created for further digital content integration in the upcoming live convention.
RVDA’s VP of administration, Ronnie Hepp, announced during the board’s meeting that she will retire in March next year, after more than 25 years with the association.
The board’s fiscal year 2022 budget, which takes effect July 1, includes:
- Legislative priority support, including RVDA involvement in the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable and other federal and state issues that impact dealers.
- Education programs and networking opportunities at the RV Dealers Convention/Expo, including a virtual element to follow the in-person event at Paris Las Vegas.
- Repair Event Cycle Time (RECT) support initiatives, including the Mike Molino RV Learning Center’s service writer/advisor online training program and a future web-based program for parts managers and specialists.
