The board of directors of the National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (ARVC) on Saturday (April 4) voted to rescind the 4% increase in annual dues, which had been scheduled to take effect in January 2010. 

“Given the continued weakness in the economy, our board felt that our members should not have to pay for any further increases in membership dues in 2010,” said Linda Profaizer, ARVC’s president and CEO, in a news release. 

Saturday’s vote followed several days of meetings and strategy sessions involving members of ARVC‘s board of directors and executive committee. 

Based in Larkspur, Colo., ARVC is the largest association of private campground operators in the world, with roughly 3,750 affiliated private parks throughout the United States.
