RV Industry Association (RVIA) Government Affairs Vice President Jay Landers will be retiring on March 31, 2023. He has been with the association for 32 years.
Some of his major achievements include helping establish a model RV-specific franchise law; lobbying to expand RV length and width dimensions in 48 states; organizing and hosting the second World RV Conference in Tampa, Florida; serving as a leader in the creation of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable; and much more.
“Jay takes his job very seriously, while not taking himself too seriously at all… ever,” said RV Industry Association Vice President of Membership and Research Bill Baker. “He understands the issues and the processes, but his ability to be genuine, to be himself, to connect and relate to people – from workers on the RV plant lines, to young congressional staffers, to governors and senators – is what drives his success.”
