The national RV Dealers Association (RVDA) has added Brett Richardson to the Fairfax, Va.-based organization’s staff as director of legal and regulatory affairs.
Richardson will assist in keeping members informed about federal, state, and regulatory actions that impact RV dealers, including IRS cash reporting regulations, wage and hour laws, consumer information safeguarding, “do-not-call” rules and important state and industry issues. Richardson will work with RVDA General Counsel Brock Landry of Venable, LLP, to expand the association’s capacity to communicate information about these complex issues to members in a timely manner.
“There is an incredible amount of federal and state regulatory information that RV dealers need to know about,” said RVDA Chairman of the Board Marty Shea of Madison RV Center in Huntsville, Ala. “It became clear in recent months that RVDA needed to devote more resources in this area if we are to continue to protect our members’ ability to conduct business in today’s increasingly complex regulatory environment.”
Richardson joins RVDA after representing association clients for five years while in private practice, primarily focusing on regulatory and legislative issues. Her previously served as a Staff Attorney with the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) for three years.
Richardson has a Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma and Masters of Business Administration from George Mason University.
