RVDA convention logoTen education workshops tagged especially for “Young RV Executives” will be available to attendees at the 2014 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo in Las Vegas, Nov. 10-14 at Bally’s.

According to a press release, the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association’s (RVDA) “Young RV Executives” initiative is in its second year of providing targeted education and networking opportunities for future industry leaders. Coach-Net is sponsoring a networking reception for the group on Nov. 12 at 4:15.

Of the 10 workshops, “Effectively Leading and Managing as a Young Executive,” scheduled for Nov. 13 at 10:15 a.m., was designed specifically to address the leadership training needs of this group of younger members. The remainder of the “Young RV Executives” workshops were selected from the general education curriculum and fall into several of the education tracks. In some cases there are two choices within one time slot. The events will be easily identified in the program by the “Young RV Executives” logo.

Registration is still open at the rate of $879 per attendee on the RVDA website. Dealerships that have already registered at earlier discounted rates can still add registrants at lower rates depending on when they signed up.
