The RV MH Hall of Fame is an annual event that honors members – living or deceased – for their distinctive service within their respective industries.

 

According to their website, “The RV/MH Heritage Foundation began its operation in 1972 and operates today as the RV/MH Hall of Fame and the Northern Indiana Event Center. It is a 501c-3 public not for profit.”

It goes on to state, “In the past five and half years we have made great strides in improving the financial stability and reducing the debt of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation to a position of debt-free by the end of 2018.”

The organization states their mission as follows.

ITS MISSION WAS FIVE FOLD:

  1. To maintain a Hall of Fame to honor the leaders of our Industries. Today we have over 400 members in the Hall called the “Wall of Fame”
  2. To archive our history. Today we have a great library with over 20,000 industry publications
  3. To create a display of historic products. Today we have a one of a kind museum with 100 year old RV’s
  4. To aid in promoting the RV/MH industries. Today we have the GoRving Hall for New RVs and the new Manufactured Home display for MH.
  5. To provide a first class event center. Today we operate the Northern Indiana Event Center (NIEC) with over 35,000 sq.ft. of space available in seven different areas.

The hall has been featured numerous times on MHLivingNews and here on MHProNews as well, one example, is found from the linked text/image box below.

Betty Whittaker – State Association Executive of the Year; JD Harper – Jim Moore Excellence in Communications Award

October 2nd, 2017 Comments off

BettyWhittakerKMHIExecDirectorKentuckyManufacturedHousingInstituteLogoJDHarperJimMooreExecellenceCommunicationAwardWinner Betty Whittaker, is the Executive Director of the Kentucky Manufactured Housing Institute (KMHI). She was recently awarded by her peers in MHEC the manufactured housing industry State Association Executive of the Year Award, per a release from Globe Newswire.

Whittaker is a 20-plus year manufactured housing industry veteran.  Her efforts helped assure the passage of a bill that allows a manufactured home to be severed from the land, and allow a new title to be obtained for that home.

That new law became effective in July 2017.

The Manufactured Housing Executives Council (MHEC) logo used under fair use guidelines. MHEC is made up of MH state and MH Community associations, MHARR, and MHI representatives.

Whittaker also worked with her state’s governor’s office and other groups to lobby for sales tax reform for manufactured housing.  Her efforts, in conjunction with KMHI members, led to change regulations that eliminated water testing requirements for communities that sub-meter.

Jim Moore Excellence in Communications Award

JD Harper and the Arkansas Manufactured Housing Association (AMHA) were  honored by receiving from their peers the Jim Moore Excellence in Communications Award.

The award is named for the late executive director of the Pennsylvania Manufactured Housing Association (PMHA), who was known for his commitment to industry communications.

AMHAsGetTheFactsManuFACTuredHousing-creditAMHApostedDailyBusinessNews-MHProNews-

The AMHA created a video series to educate consumers and dispel myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes about modern manufactured homes.

The video series has been featured here on the Daily Business News on MHProNews and on MHLivingNews, at this link here.

DickErnst-creditMHC-MD-com-postedDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews-Association member manufacturers provided video and photos reducing the overall production costs for the project,” said the release. The videos have been reportedly been viewed thousands of times, and have spurred some other states to do similar projects.

MHProNews congregates them and Richard “Dick” Ernst for being awarded the Totaro Award for lifetime service to the industry in the finance field. This publication and others supported Ernst for the award for some time, an honor for the president of Financial Marketing Associates that was long overdue. ## (News, commentary.)
