In June of 2008, RVAA President Mike McKay from StagParkway, Inc., appointed a Task Force led by the Association's Vice President Piar Adams from Carefree of Colorado to finalize a set of standard best practices to be presented at the 2008 Executive Conference in St. Louis.
The Task Force met on a weekly basis from the end of June through the end of July and presented its findings to the RVAA Board during their August 4th, 2008 meeting. The Board approved that these Best Practice Standards be presented to the RVAA membership and their use encouraged to help improve the overall efficiency of the aftermarket channel.
The Best Practices were broken down into three categories: Parts Best Practices, Education Best Practices, and Sales Best Practices. The Standards for each category can be reviewed by clicking on the links to the right of this page.
