The RV Industry Association (RVIA) is seeking nominations for its board of directors.

RVIA News & Insights reported the association’s Governance Committee is currently inviting submissions from RV industry leaders who are interested in running for one of the seven open director positions up for election this year including three supplier representatives, two manufacturer representatives, one park model manufacturer representative and one at-large representative. The three-year position on the board is set to begin Jan. 1, 2020.

The board is the highest level of authority in the association’s overall organizational structure and is responsible for setting and overseeing strategy and policy related to critical topics such as standards, marketing, government affairs, trade shows, industry education and association finances.

At the June 2018 board meeting, the board made the decision to move the association’s financials from a fiscal year to a calendar year. This has implications on the election cycle as well, and as a result, the current positions listed above have terms that extend until Dec. 31 rather than Sept. 30 as it has in previous years.

The election will take place this September and the results will be announced in October. All newly elected board members are expected to be at the board meeting on November 12 which will take place during the RV Dealers Association’s (RVDA) 2019 RV Dealers Convention and Expo in Las Vegas, for transition and orientation training. Newly elected board members will begin serving their terms on Jan. 1, 2020.

Interested candidates or persons who wish to make a nomination may contact Dianne Dunleavy by July 26 at [email protected] or 571-665-5850.
