The Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) is now providing its members with periodic online educational seminars via Zoom.

“We thought this would be a great way to share the experience of industry experts to help our members improve their management, operations, and profitability without having to take extensive time away from their busy work schedules,” said Brian Schaeffer, TACO’s executive vice president and CEO.

Kelly Jones, vice president of operations of The Jenkins Organization and Great Escapes RV Resorts, hosted TACO’s inaugural educational seminar on April 18. Her topic: “What You REALLY Need To Know About Workampers, Contractors, and Staff!”

Before joining The Jenkins Organization in 2020, Jones was vice president of operations of Milford, Ohio-based Leisure Systems, Inc. (LSI), now Camp Jellystone, which franchises Yogi Bear-themed parks across the U.S. and Canada. Jones was responsible for LSI’s operational functions, including franchisee education, training, and property assessments.

“The inaugural session was a great success,” said Schaeffer, adding that, “we discussed everything from hiring and interviewing to compensating, and the true difference between employees and contractors.”

According to Jones, “This is not info that everyone WANTS to hear, but it is information everyone NEEDS to understand.” TACO plans to post this and future session PowerPoint presentations for reference on their members-only website, www.TACOmembers.com, as another outstanding member benefit. 

TACO will be hosting these member-only webinars throughout the year with industry specialists tackling a variety of topics. Each session will include question-and-answer time for TACO members.

Based in Crowley, the Texas Association of Campground Owners is the largest state trade association in the country that exclusively represents campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across the Lone Star State.
