Park Owners Eye National Issues Conf.
On April 29-May 1, the annual National Issues Conference, sponsored by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC), will educate and inform RV park and campground owners and operators about key issues having a significant impact on their business.
Attendees will be able to influence the outcome of those issues by meeting directly with key decision-makers. As the nation heads toward the election of a new president and a new Congress, the National Issues Conference has never been timelier or more important, according to ARVC.
The conference will begin at the Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Md., just outside Washington, and move on to the historic Capitol Hill Club within a couple blocks of the U.S. Capitol. Those present will be able to meet with their senators and representatives to express their views on major issues affecting their business.
Among the issues to be covered at the 2008 conference are the impact of higher federal fuel economy standards on the RV industry, the role of RV parks and campgrounds in encouraging more children and youth to enjoy outdoor recreation, new tax and workplace regulations affecting small businesses, the latest tourism and federal land issues, the upcoming reauthorization of the federal highway program and state and local issues pressing on RV parks and campgrounds.
To register for the conference or for more information contact Micki Leak, ARVC’s director of meetings and membership, at (703) 241-8801, Ext. 10 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
