Watch here for Info about 2018 in Shawnee, Oklahoma

We have an exciting schedule of events planned this year. To all of you who are serving as committee chairs or presenting a seminar, thank you for your commitment to making this another great RVW convention.

If you have information to share about hobbies, crafts, areas of special interest or on-the-road or volunteer work experiences, it isn't too late to schedule a seminar, but we do need to hear from you now. We will be finalizing our convention schedule soon

We also owe special thanks to our convention host chapters, the Great Lakers Chapter and Ohio River Valley Chapter, and to the Mid-Atlantic Chapter, this year's sponsor of our always-popular ice cream social. Thank you also to the Ohio River Valley Chapter for coordinating our Tuesday afternoon First Timers reception.

Auction and Raffle Donations
New or gently used items are needed for the silent auction, package raffle, and door prizes. Please plan to bring those items to the convention and drop them off at the fundraising area.
