Nominations Open for RV Women’s Alliance Awards

The RV Women’s Alliance (RVWA) has opened nominations for its annual awards, set to recognize individuals and companies that elevate, educate, and promote women in the RV industry. The awards will be presented during the Awards Dinner on October 17, a highlight of the RVWA Education Symposium at The Westin Chicago (North Shore).

This year, the Alliance will present four awards: the Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Leader of Tomorrow Award, and the Champion of Women Awards for both an individual and a company. These awards aim to celebrate significant contributions to the RV industry and support for women within it, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association (RVIA).

“Recognizing the contributions and achievements of the incredible women in the RV industry is a core part of the RV Women’s Alliance mission,” said Susan Carpenter, president of the RVWA, as said in the RVIA report.

“For the past two years, these awards have highlighted not only our winners but also the impressive roster of finalists. We are excited to again recognize our emerging leaders, industry icons, and those championing women in our industry.”

Tracy Anglemeyer, chair-elect of the Alliance and a previous Trailblazer Award recipient, emphasized the personal and professional impact of these awards. 

“The RVWA emulates my ideals in elevating, inspiring, and educating its members. The symposium encompasses all these areas while also recognizing leaders who empower others in the RV industry,” Anglemeyer said.

The Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement honors women who have significantly contributed to the RV industry over a minimum of 20 years. 

The Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes women making substantial impacts in the early stages of their careers, specifically those who have worked in the RV industry for less than five years. 

The Champion of Women Awards celebrate both an individual and a company that actively promote and support women in the RV industry.

Nominations are open until August 1, 2024, inviting the RV community to recognize and celebrate those who have made outstanding contributions. Detailed information on each award and the nomination process is available on the RV Women’s Alliance website.

The RV Women’s Alliance Education Symposium, scheduled for October 16-17, promises to be an enriching event with educational sessions and networking opportunities. Tickets go on sale June 3, with early bird pricing available until July 2.

The symposium will feature a range of topics relevant to the RV industry. According to a report by RVIA, there has been a significant increase in RV shipments in recent years, reflecting the growing popularity of RV travel and the industry’s expansion. 

This context underscores the importance of recognizing those who contribute to the industry’s success and support the advancement of women within it.
