The second annual gathering for CAMP-College will be April 26 at Cherry Hill Campground in College Park, Md.

CAMP-College is a special full day of education put on by Evergreen insurance for members of Campground Association Management Professionals (CAMP).

CAMP was formed in 1991 when several state campground and RV park association executives got together and formalized their meetings held in conjunction with the annual National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) convention. They learned that sharing information about issues within their state and programs offered within other states helped each of them run a better association for their RV park and campground members, according to a news release.

CAMP now meets twice a year, during ARVC’s annual fall convention and in the spring near Washington, D.C., during ARVC’s National Issues Conference. Additionally, CAMP conducts an annual survey of what type of programs and member benefits state executives offer their members.

CAMP-College is sponsored by Evergreen and is a special day that provides intensive education to the leaders of the camping industry. Association executive directors, staff and presidents benefit from attendance at this day of learning. This year Evergreen will once again be featuring Bob Harris  as a speaker.

Harris has 20 years experience with associations. His seminars are interactive, focused on core-knowledge and member needs. He utilizes case studies, trends and headlines board orientation, training, strategic planning, staff training and consulting. He is the author of Association Management 101 Online, creator of the Association Self-Auditing Process and co-author of “Building an Association Management Company.”
