DAVID SCHENCK JOINS AZ ARVC AS CO-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR WITH JO ANN MICKELSON
Arizona ARVC also sets its annual convention for April 16-17, 2019 at Vee Quiva Resort & Casino in Laveen
David Schenck, the 2017 recipient of Arizona ARVC’s “Supplier of the Year” Award recently retired from Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality Insurance after a multi-decade career that also included 15 years with Jim Calfee Insurance and 25 years owning and operating his own insurance agency.
But Schenck is as busy as ever in his new role joining Jo Ann Mickelson as co-executive director of Arizona ARVC, which was approved by the association’s board in December. The board also changed the status of the co-executive director positions, making them both contract positions, which will save the association money.
Schenck will focus on member programs, outreach and collections and take over management of Arizona ARVC’s award winning campground directory.
Mickelson, who has managed Arizona ARVC for many years, will focus her attention on the association’s GoCampingInAmerica website and bookkeeping. Both Schenck and Mickelson will split the management of Arizona ARVC’s annual convention, which will take place April 16 and 17 at Vee Quiva Resort & Casino in Laveen.
Convention activities will begin with a cracker barrel session at 7pm April 16, with a full day of convention activities on the 17th.
Melissa Parham of Williams, Zinman & Parham, P.C. in Scottsdale will provide an update on current legislative issues affecting Arizona park operators. There will also be classes on ADA compliance, WiFi and roundtable discussions with vendors. There will also be a luncheon and tradeshow.
Winners of Arizona ARVC’s annual awards competition will also be presented their awards.
