Later that day, Edward McDonough from the Maryland Emergency Management Agency will address the group and Guy Gagnon from Evergreen USA will host a seminar titled “Developing a Risk Management Attitude.”

Paul Bambei, president of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC), will open the conference, highlighting the benefits of ARVC membership.

Marketing topics include the “441 of On-line Marketing – Do you Pinterest, Blog and Tweet?,” “How to Recruit, Hire and Retain New Employees Including Teenagers” and “Working With Your Local Chambers of Commerce.”
