What does National ARVC do for you?

 

· In 2021, the National ARVC government affairs team has reviewed more than 11,000 federal and state legislative issues (including 162 in Alabama and 508 in Florida) and sent out more than 312 pieces of actionable intelligence. At the state level, specifically, National ARVC is working with five different associations to draft and introduce inherent risk legislation to ensure your business is not negatively affected by frivolous lawsuits. 

 

· As the COVID pandemic began, our team worked tirelessly alongside our partnering state executives to explain regulations, provide guidance on procedures to open your parks safely—leading more than a dozen grassroots campaigns that resulted in more than 25,000 communications sent to local mayors and council, state legislators, U.S. members of Congress and the Trump Administration.  

 

· In mid-2020, we began working directly with the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), along with other industry leaders, to get members of our industry recognized nationally as essential businesses, which will benefit you if/when another pandemic or natural disaster threatens your businesses. 

 

· In tandem with our DC-based lobbying firm, McDermott, Will and Emory, National ARVC is actively involved in Washington, advocating for our industry to get major policy decisions to swing in your favor, including the favorable Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) decision to not include front porches in the square footage of a park model RV (PMRV) and the more recent National Electric Code (NEC70) decision to not include GFCI protection on all 30- and 50-amp electric pedestals—decisions that would have cost you thousands had the decision gone the other way.  

 

· We are working directly on the Steering Committee for a future White House Conference on Small Business and with the Family Business Coalition to address possible capital gains changes and a roll back of the step-up tax that could negatively impact all family-owned businesses in our industry. We are also working with the National Federation of Independent Business to advocate on minimum wage issues. 

 

· The National ARVC Advocacy Center recently launched direct campaigns to Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), urging these two pivotal swing votes in the Senate to consider the impact of tax proposals in the current infrastructure bill on our industry nationwide. 

 

· National ARVC sits on the board of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR), a powerful coalition of 31 other associations including marine, boating, fishing, snowmobiling, fishing, RV manufacturing and RV dealers, that collectively represents 2.1% of the US gross domestic product (GDP), and participated in influencing the Small Business Administration (SBA) to establish PPP loans for small businesses last year and also pushed to get the bipartisan $9.5 billion Great American Outdoors Act passed in 2020, which the Associated Press wrote is “the most significant conservation legislation enacted in nearly half a century.”  

 

In addition to this advocacy work, we are also actively marketing National ARVC member-parks on multiple channels to millions of campers across the country to drive more business to you and will continue to offer exclusive discounts to help you save money.
