The Boards of RVM Australia and CRVA have unanimously agreed to support the merger of the two organisations to create one national peak industry body, a statement by the Integration Working Party said today.
To be known as the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, this whole of industry approach will:
create a single and powerful industry voice to government and media;
achieve stronger links between state and national;
drive growth; and
combat non compliance within the industry.
For our industry businesses this will allow access to greater resources, increased member services, and being part of a strong national representative body to grow the caravanning and camping industry, the joint statement said.
Both Boards will seek endorsement from their members over the next two months to implement the new organisation ahead of a targeted 1 July 2014 commencement.
