Getting to know NERVDA . . .
So what is NERVDA and why should I be interested in this web site and blog?
That's a very good question, so let me try to convince you that with all the distractions in your life and all the clutter on the Internet, that you should be interested in the New England RV Dealers and how they can help you maximize the investment you have made, or will make, in an RV and how you can enjoy the excitement and adventure of the RV lifestyle.
The New England RV Dealers Association has long been associated with the Boston RV & Camping Expo. In 2013, Jeff Hirsch (CEO of Campers Inn and incoming Chairman of RVDA) took a leadership role in reorganizing the association, replacing the Executive Director and provided the guidance needed to establish a new NERVDA - one that would be more responsive to the dealers and offer real value to build a professional organization that would benefit all RV enthusiasts in New England.
Our current Board of Directors:
- President: Brian Sullivan, Campers Inn
- Treasurer: Steve Flagg, Flagg RV
- Secretary: Frank Roberts, Long View RV
- At Large: Bruce Richard, Bank of the West
- At Large: Debra DeCosta, Camping USA Superstore
- Executive Director, Bob Zagami
NERVDA teamed up with Paragon Group in Needham, MA and moved the Boston RV Expo to the incredible Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in South Boston. Working closely together they produced one of the best RV shows in the country in 2013 and 2014. The 2015 Boston RV & Camping Expo will be held January 17-19 - mark your calendars now!
The association then hired a new Executive Director (me), Bob Zagami. I've been an active RVer for over 35 years and have many great memories of our children growing up and appreciating RVs and the enjoyment they brought to our family. You probably have similar memories of your own RVing experiences.
During the past year we have reorganized the association, bringing real value to our dealer members through more consumer interaction on our NERVDA Facebook page: www.facebook.com/rvinginnewengland that now has almost 3,000 fans.
With the launch of our NERVDA consumer page (www.nervda.com) we will be communicating with RV enthusiasts on a regular basis and introducing them to our dealers, the products they carry, the services they offer and campgrounds and suppliers that will enhance your RVing experiences.
We are also excited to announce our first major RV sale and show in Western Massachusetts later this month at our Six Flags New England Summer RV Sale and Show on August 21-24. You won't want to miss this opportunity to get incredible end-of-year deals as our dealers move this year's models off their lots. We have partnered with Joe Gonsalves of Northeast Productions to develop and manage this event for NERVDA.
We hope you will be a frequent visitor to our site and invite you to sign up for our mailing list to make sure you know everything about RVing that is happening in New England. Spread the word - tell your family and friends about NERVDA.com and let's have some great RV fun on the road and in the campgrounds of New England.
