Bill and Kristin Fenech increased their personal donation to the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) Education Foundation’s RV Learning Center by $10,000, making their total contribution $50,000, according to a news release from the RVDA.
The Fenechs have been supporters of the RV Learning Center since 2004. Bill Fenech is president of the Thor Industries Inc. subsidiaries Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds International.
“A gift to the RV Learning Center is one of the best ways to improve the availability of continuing education for RV dealership employees,” said Bill Fenech. “Kristin and I are pleased to be able to support these important industry programs that help improve the sales and service process for RV buyers.”
“Industry support is vital if the RV Learning Center is to develop and maintain its educational offerings,” said RVDA Education Foundation Chairman Rick Horsey of Parkview RV Center in Smyrna, Del. “We thank Bill and Kristin for their ongoing support for RV dealers and the RV Learning Center.”
The RV Learning Center is dedicated to providing dealers and their employees with innovative ways to operate RV dealerships through an array of education resources including publications, distance learning, live workshops, online products, training, and certification programs for RV dealership personnel. Participation in RV industry certification programs was a key recommendation of the Go RVing Coalition’s Committee on Excellence Task Force reports, which studied consumer satisfaction.
The RV Learning Center is in the midst of a 2010 Fundraising Challenge campaign to support industry education programs.
