The ARVC Foundation Auction has always been one of the highlights of the annual Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE), as members of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) come together to bid on amazing items to support the ARVC Foundation. This year, the ARVC Foundation is excited to pivot to a fully online auction, taking place from Nov. 2-5 during the virtual OHCE2020.

March is National Women’s History Month, so we thought this would be the perfect time to honor all of the smart, talented, hard-working women who have helped make the outdoor hospitality industry the success that it is today. We wish we had the space to recognize each one of them individually (that would be one seriously long blog post), but since we don’t, here’s a sampling of the many amazing women who contribute so much to our industry.

The ARVC Foundation announces six scholarship recipients for the National School of RV Park & Campground Management in Myrtle Beach, S.C. National School is a high-quality educational program that focuses on business management principles and practices as applied to the RV park and campground industry. The program brings leading industry experts into the classroom to provide attendees with the skills and expertise they need to make a positive impact on their campground and in the industry.

The ARVC Foundation is soliciting donations for the annual live auction that will take place during the 2019 Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE). The auction is one of the highlights of the OHCE week and the money raised is vital to the ARVC Foundation’s continued efforts to support the outdoor hospitality industry.

GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 20, 2018 — More than a dozen campgrounds and RV resorts across North and South Carolina are providing temporary shelter or a place to stay for Hurricane Florence evacuees, and several of them are offering discounts, according to the Carolinas Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds.

“Campgrounds and RV parks are uniquely positioned to accommodate evacuees and often provide emergency shelter during or after major storms, not only in the Carolinas, but across the United States,” said Dee Witting, executive director of the Carolinas Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds. Witting added that many areas of the Carolinas escaped damage during Hurricane Florence and campgrounds in these locations are able to accommodate evacuees as well as travelers.
