WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) will host its 17th annual Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. as part of Committee Week. The RVIA reports that the event will include training on June 5 to prepare participants for the trip to Capitol Hill on June 6, while also allowing them to select federal agencies for meetings on important industry issues. Advocacy Day will close with the 5th Annual RV Caucus reception.

 “Advocacy Day makes a critical contribution to the association’s federal advocacy efforts by allowing our members to meet with their elected officials, advocate for industry priorities and raise the profile of the RV industry on Capitol Hill,” said Jay Landers, RVIA vice president, government relations. “Both the House and Senate will be in session so we are hoping to schedule meetings with as many Members of Congress as possible.”

 In addition to meeting with members of Congress, RVIA staff will also meet with key federal agencies. At the RV Caucus reception – which will be held on the U.S. Senate side this year – RV industry executives will mingle with more than 200 guests, including members of Congress, senior Hill staff, federal agency representatives and allied industry colleagues.
