Not often does a service provider have a positive impact on all segments of a given industry. The RV Safety & Education Foundation (RVSEF) fits that bill nicely within the RV industry. RVSEF is not only the RVing publicâ€™s best friend, but many motorhome builders in the RV industry have benefitted from its dedication as well.
Family Motor Coach Associationâ€™s 85th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase, held March 14-17 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter in Perry, provided RVers a jump-start to spring as they assembled for fun, friendship, education, and entertainment in the heart of the Peach State.
Good news! This August, the Family Motor Coach Association will hold its 86th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase in Madison, Wisconsin. And “Mad Town,” as the city is affectionately called, is a place where you do not need “mad money” to see most attractions. Many are free!
One of the great benefits of being an FMCA member is the wonderful staff we have doing the work of the association in Cincinnati.Â Have you ever thought about how many weeks and days go into 42 years of service?Â Well, it is a bit mind-boggling.
In order to shed more light on the operation of FMCA, I thought it would be a good idea for each department director to write a little something about his or her background and to explain the responsibilities associated with their position and how the staff plays a key role in what gets accomplished.Â I have asked Pamela Kay, director of communications, to start this off.Â
So Many Swirls!
I noted with a longstanding interest the comments by Mel Smith (“Simplify Exterior ‘Designs,'” Readers’ Forum, February 2011, page 12) about RV exterior designs. For years I have been puzzled by the freestyle swirls, appliques, and paint treatments on motorhomes and RVs in general.
