PARD board of directors  Farzad Irani, Phillip Bumbry, Sandi Frye, Tony Mitchell and Dan Fisher

The Pennsylvania Association of Rental Dealers [PARD] met for its Annual Meeting last week in Harrisburg, PA. The event included educational training, vendor sessions, presentations by 2018 RTO World speakers Jim Corter, Corter Consulting, and Mike McDowell, Social Joey; a Pennsylvania Legislative Overview by John O’Connell, PARD Lobbyist; and an election for 2019-2020 board of directors where Phillip Bumbry was named PARD president.

APRO board member Sandi Frye had served as the Pennsylvania State Association president for more than a decade. “I have loved being PARD president,” says Frye. “It has allowed me to develop myself and the dealers in Pennsylvania. I have been able to get the state association going in the right direction and believe Phillip has a good vision. I am excited to see it reach the next level.” Frye will continue to serve as a PARD board member.

Students from the local Nativity School expressed their appreciation for PARD’s continued support for their education.

This year’s meeting was also attended by students from the local Nativity School, a nonprofit Catholic school for inner-city students, that PARD donates to each year. Members from the school expressed their appreciation for the donation of 4 iPads and the continued support for their education. PARD also donated $1000 to the Maria Fisher Scholarship Fund.

PARD’s newly elected board of directors are Phillip Bumbry, president; Dan Fisher, vice president; Tony Mitchell, secretary; and board members Sandi Frye and Farzad Irani.
