The Ron & Lisa Fenech Foundation increased its donation to the RVDA Education Foundation’s RV Learning Center by $25,000, making their total donation $50,000. Ron Fenech is RV Group president for Thor Industries Inc. and responsible for all its RV businesses.
“The RV Learning Center is a valuable resource for RV industry education and certification,” Ron Fenech stated in a news release. “Lisa and I are proud to contribute to an organization dedicated to providing continuing education resources for RV dealership employees, who are on the front lines of customer service for our mutual customers.”
“The Ron & Lisa Fenech Foundation’s support for the work of the RV Learning Center is gratifying, especially as the RV industry recovers from the recession,” said RVDA Education Foundation Chairman Rick Horsey of Parkview RV Center in Smyrna, Del. “This contribution will help ensure that the RV Learning Center programs continue to be available for current and future dealership employees.”
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.
