“Thank you to MBA Insurance for partnering with RVDA again this year for the 2017 Convention Expo,” said Convention Expo Chair Ron Shepherd, Camperland of Oklahoma President. “Bert Alanko is one of the biggest proponents of an educated workforce, and his entire career has been dedicated to keeping professional development affordable and relevant for dealership staff. We are fortunate to have supporters like Bert that we can count on year after year.”

Alanko said, “RVDA has been an integral part of the success of the RV industries’ over the years.  Our affiliation with RVDA/RVRA has, from the very beginning, given MBA greater visibility and credibility.  It is our pleasure at MBA to be able to partner with RVDA; supporting the great effort that staff and volunteers put into making our dealer association beneficial to this industry.”

“MBA has been there from the beginning, that little convention at the Holiday Inn in Orlando,” he continued.  “To see what RVDA has become through the good and the tough times is a testament to the strength and leadership of the dealer body.  We are proud to be a part of it.”

The 2017 theme is “Gear Up for Success” and the RVDA Convention/Expo Committee is working to provide a variety of workshops and networking events that will aid dealers in building on an expanding market and interest in RVs and RV travel.
