Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) members will meet to plan the association’s agenda for the next fiscal year and beyond at Committee Week 2011, taking place June 6–9 at the historic Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Over the course of the four-day event, the association’s standing committees, Executive Committee and Board of Directors will convene to review existing programs and plan new strategies and initiatives for the upcoming fiscal year.
The Go RVing Coalition and newly created Canadian Coalition Committee are also scheduled to meet in conjunction with Committee Week on June 6.
“We are looking forward to a very productive week of meetings,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “Our association is very fortunate to have such talented committee members who readily volunteer their time to help us chart our future course. The work done at Committee Week is vitally important, especially this year as we look to continue the RV industry’s recovery.”
In addition to the full slate of committee meetings, other popular events taking place during Committee Week include:
• Joint Committee Luncheon – Committee members will gather on June 6 to hear economist Richard Curtin discuss current market conditions and detail findings from his latest RV consumer demographic research.
• Capitol Hill Reception – Following Monday’s meetings, Committee Week participants will gather in the Congressional Atrium for a special reception saluting Past RVIA Chairman Jim Sheldon and tour of the United States Capitol.
• Annual Membership Meeting – A two-hour luncheon program will be held on Tuesday, June 7, to offer reports on the state of the association from key RVIA officials, including RVIA Chairman Gregg Fore and RVIA President Richard Coon.
• Capital Hill Advocacy Day – RVIA members will descend on Capitol Hill for Advocacy Day on, June 8, to promote important industry issues.
Most committee meetings are open to guest attendance, however, anyone planning to attend a meeting for a committee for which they are not a member should reference the information on Committee Week etiquette in the registration packet and contact the RVIA staff liaison or committee chairman for information on the committee’s guest policy.
