The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) board elected Darrel Friesen of All Seasons RV Center in Yuba City, Calif., as secretary and Tim Wegge of Burlington RV Superstore in Sturtevant, Wisc., as a director.
According to a press release, in addition to serving on the RVDA board Friesen has held a seat on the Board of Delegates and is a past president of the California RV Dealers Association (CalRVDA). Beyond holding various volunteer leadership positions, he is also active in the association’s industry relations and advocacy efforts.
Wegge is a former member of the RVDA board and served previously as an officer. He was instrumental in organizing fact-to-face dealer-manufacturer meetings held during the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, which are now known as Partners in Progress Brand Committee meetings.
The RVDA board, acting on the recommendation of its Nominating Committee, made the moves to fill a vacancy created when Amy Pennington resigned from her post as secretary after selling her interest in RV Outlet Mall.
“We are fortunate to have qualified and energetic volunteer leaders prepared and willing to step up to help their fellow dealers,” said RVDA Chairman Jeff Hirsch of Campers Inn of Kingston, Kingston, N.H. “I expect both Darrel and Tim to bring their usual enthusiasm, expertise and dedication to these new roles. With their strong institutional knowledge they are ready to hit the ground running.”
The RVDA board is scheduled to hold its next meeting March 18-20 in Fairfax, Va.
