Mary Pouliot of Thetford Corp. was voted to a Michigan Association of Recreational Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVC) board seat in June and will undergo orientation at the organization’s Aug. 6 meeting.
Pouliot, director of customer service since 2006 for Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Thetford, is an at-large representative and one of two elected to the nine-member board after month-long, all-member voting in June. She was officially appointed on July 1 and is currently studying board responsibilities and issues in preparation for the upcoming meeting.
“It’s an exciting opportunity for me personally,” Pouliot said. “I’m pleased to represent Thetford, all members and all RV suppliers on the board.”
