Early-bird member tickets go on sale this Friday, April 15, for the RV Women’s Alliance Education Symposium which takes place in October in Chicago.
The event, which is open to anyone in the RV industry, includes workshops presented by Purdue University, a keynote speaker and plenty of networking opportunities including an awards dinner and a cocktail reception.
What makes this educational event different than others is the two dual seminar tracks that attendees can follow, according to RVWA President Susan Carpenter. The tracks are based on the same topics, but they are tailored to fit two distinct industry employee type: One track is tailored for first time and emerging leaders while the other is tailored for mid- and top-level leaders.
