CRVA has a commitment to provide opportunities for youth within the Caravanning and Camping Industry to grow and as such provides specific opportunities for professional development and networking for under 35s within the industry.
One of these youth-focused endeavours includes the facilitation of the Future Leaders Committee, formed in 2013. The inaugural Bauer Media Future Leaders Award, this year presented to Joshua Carnavas, Operations Manager at Brisbane Camperland, was established as result of a recommendation of the commitee. The award offers a substantial scholarship as well as professional development opportunities.
The standard of entrants and finalists was extremely high, reinforcing the fact that CRVA and the rest of the industry should be investing in our future leaders. Rob Gallagher of Bauer Media agreed when presenting the award at the Industry Gala Dinner on Friday 4 April.
“The calibre of the finalists is amazing and is testament to the strength of the industry and where it’s going”, Mr Gallagher said.
It was also encouraging to see such a high number of under 35s in attendance at the CRVA National Conference, many of whom participated in the various youth specific activities on offer at the event.
The future of industry is in good hands.
