RVIA says RVs Move America Week is a re-branding of what was formerly called Committee Week. The event is set for June 2-6 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.
In addition to RVIA committee meetings, RVIA says the industry will gather during the week to nurture ideas and collectively build a strategic roadmap to navigate the direction of industry goals and objectives, interact with industry colleagues and meet with federal policymakers.
RVIA says the RV industry will “conquer” the Hill, meeting with Congressional and Administration officials, forging relationships beneficial to business and discussing current issues affecting the industry. This year, the updated RVs Move America Economic Impact study will also be released on Capitol Hill in conjunction with the House and Senate RV Caucuses.
The 2018 advocacy event was the largest for the association, with 120 members holding 170 meetings with Members of Congress, their staffs and Administration officials. From increasing membership in the House and Senate RV Caucuses to gaining support on a variety of industry initiatives, RVIA says it is more critical than ever to assist the association’s advocacy efforts and leave a compelling imprint on federal policymakers.
