ORVA Readies for ‘Looking to the Future’ Convention on June 23

The Oklahoma RV Association (ORVA) will hold its 2019 State Convention from June 23-24 at the Grand Casino Hotel in Shawnee, Okla. This year’s convention will feature a slate of speakers designed to bring ORVA members all the latest news and updates in the industry along with new learning opportunities for their businesses.

The theme for the convention is “Look to the Future.” It’s expected to resonate with attendees as they hear from top leaders in the RV industry outlining the opportunities that lie ahead for dealers to be prepared to take their dealership to the next level, according to the association. During registration, attendees will receive a special “Look to the Future” package provided by Diversified Insurance Management to motivate their plans for 2020.

The convention then opens Sunday with a member golf tournament followed by a welcome reception at the Grand Casino Hotel. Monday starts the educational segment of the convention which will address current affairs and changes affecting the RV industry as presented by some of the RV industry’s top speakers such as Phil Ingrassia, Jay Landers, Curt Hemmeler, Leo Akins, Brad Stanek, and David Martin.

Also, there will be a follow up panel discussion on Monday for the group with Roy Dockum, executive director of Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Commission, Jay Landers, RV Industry Association’s VP of government affairs, and Phil Ingrassia, president of the RV Dealers Association, about new issues and changes in the industry. 

On Monday evening, after the cocktail reception-which will feature the culmination of a special donor silent auction and 50/50 money match campaign to raise funds for the dealer association, the President’s Banquet Gala will take place. This will then be followed by Game Show Nite’s special entertainment.

All of the special speakers, accommodations, door prize giveaways, silent auction donations that make ORVA’s convention top notch, are made possible by all the special sponsors and supporters.
