We look forward to having him serve in this new leadership capacity.”
“I’m honored to be taking on this new leadership role,” Smith said. “Exciting things are happening at FMCA, and my goal is to keep the momentum going and continue to build on FMCA’s legacy as the best organization for motorhome owners. We’ll be looking for new ways and opportunities to serve the needs of RV travelers. I’ll be attending the upcoming National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., and look forward to connecting with industry representatives there.”
